We asked exhibitors at the Innovation Hub at the Royal Norfolk Show to share their views of the future, to identify the drivers for change and to show how their technology is part of the roadmap.
“We see a future where automated machinery will work collaboratively. For example imaging from drones will be used to direct sprayers to target specific areas of the field at exactly the right time, reducing costs and chemical use and minimising soil damage.”
“We’ve seen the increasing adoption of sensors and drones; the next step is integrating their data into ‘Smart Farming’ frameworks which will enable farmers to maintain yields while reducing inputs and improving biodiversity.”
“From water quality monitoring to animal tracking to soil pH, as well as vehicle tracking, pumping systems and light levels, all of it will be in one place. In addition, the system itself can make decisions when necessary.”
