Productive, profitable and sustainable?
Can agri-tech deliver a 'third way'?

Soil tillage has led to soil erosion at rates that threaten sustainable food supply. As a result, farming practices that work with nature are gaining momentum.
But for the whole value chain to embrace this challenge we need a dialogue based on good science, relevant metrics and consistent standards.
At REAP we are looking at how today’s best practice is being enhanced by emerging agri-tech.
Early adopters share their experiences from the field, regulators outline future strategy, and researchers and technologists provide insights into emerging agri-tech developments.
It’s our future we’re talking about – come and join us!
