Agri-Tech Week 2017
Save the date: Agri-Tech Week 2017: 6-10th November 2017
To celebrate innovation across the region we have a week of agri-tech events with something to interest everyone.
Agri-Tech Week is a partnership initiative to showcase excellence in innovation across the agri-tech value chain, brokering links and fostering new relationships between businesses, researchers and government. It was founded in 2014 by Agri-Tech East, the Royal Norfolk Agricultural Association and the Suffolk Agricultural Association.
Agri-Tech Week also provides an opportunity to welcome new collaborators, customers and partners to the east of England’s agri-tech ecosystem, and features events, visits, workshops and discussions across the east of England, as well as Agri-Tech East’s REAP conference in Cambridge.

“Water is to me, I confess, a phenomenon which continually awakens new feelings of wonder as often as I view it,” said British Scientist Michael Faraday (1791-1867), inventor of the early electric motor.
As water becomes an increasingly valued resource, farmers and innovators are finding new ways of recycling, re-using and reducing water use, and enjoying some additional added benefits.
