Climate smart agriculture
Express Weather has developed a decision support system called Farmneed that quantifies weather risk in agriculture.
The innovative application is device agnostic and delivers bespoke content on weather and early warning for disease and pest infestation. It also provides on-demand guidance on crop protection, agri input management and soil management based on location, crop and field conditions.
The theme of REAP 2017 is “Today’s Knowledge Meets Tomorrow’s Technology,” and biology is at the forefront with our keynote speaker focusing on no-till agriculture. But beyond that, soil microbes, insects and plant extracts could hold the key to some exciting new pesticides, fertilisers and biostimulants.
With the pressure mounting to find novel chemistries and the future of many existing chemical products in question, the solution for future crop management is increasingly seen in biology.
