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.
“I came here with a specific goal – to meet farmers to recruit into a new soils project – and I’ve achieved it,” a delegate from a major agri-research organisation commented on the REAP feedback form.
Another delegate, this time one of the region’s leading farmers, tweeted to a speaker in the Start-up Showcase: “Been keeping tabs on your development and then saw start up demo @AgriTechEast and thought what have I got to lose?”
