• Bring out your data

    Do you have a big challenge that you want to solve?  The solution might be in your data – if you were able to process it effectively –  or potentially there are wider industry, agronomic or environmental datasets that may hold the answers.   Agri-Tech East is determined to bring together those with the questions with specialists that have the expertise to crunch the data.

    We are saying ‘Bring out your data’ at this Big Data workshop and there will be data analysis experts on hand to help farmers and others see how data gained in different ways can provide new insights once combined.
