- Antony Yousefian, Director UK, 30MHz
30MHz30MHz provides growers with everything they need to set up a wireless sensor network, and start monitoring their crops, growing environment and storage in a matter of minutes, all without any technical expertise.
Customers choose the combination of sensors for their context (capturing metrics including VPD, dewpoint, soil moisture, light intensity, temperature, humidity, windspeed, airflow and CO2). 30MHz provides a private, scalable mesh network (with the option to easily add more sensors at any time) and an intuitive analytics platform with real-time alerts, visualizations, heatmaps, charts and graphs. Data is easily exportable in CSV, analytics dashboards are easily shared with third parties (with adjustable permissions) and the 30MHz API allows users to connect external data sources (including weather and climate control data).
Real-time crop monitoring helps growers make quick, informed decisions with granular, accurate data. 30MHz customers have see quick payback, cases with ROI >1000%, 5% annual energy savings, labour producitivty and thousands in pesticide reduction too. We will showcasing and sharing these stories at REAP 18.

Martin LishmanMartin Lishman Ltd has over 40 years' experience of designing and producing crop storage and quality control products. In the context of using agritech solutions to help solve huge post-harvest losses, we will be highlighting ways in which our products help customers reduce waste, increase quality and save time and money.
There will be a chance to look at how users of our Barn Owl Wireless remote monitoring and automatic fan control system make significant storage energy and time cost savings while avoiding costly rejections due to high temperatures or insects.
Preventing waste due to damage and bruising during production, handling and transport of fresh produce is a major benefit of our TuberLog electronic potato. This is now used worldwide in the potato industry. The concept has recently been extended with our latest innovation - ImpacTrack - a temperature and impact logger used to monitor and record damage to more delicate produce such as avocados, sweetcorn, apples and eggs. Advances in 3D printing technology mean that we can create a carrier shell for the logger in virtually any food shape. Users can track progress of produce through the entire post-harvest supply chain, leading to less waste and higher production yields.
NIABNIAB is the UK’s fastest growing crop science organisation, with rapidly expanding research capabilities in plant genetics, agronomy, farming systems and data science, the largest national field trials capability, and strong research links with industry, Government and academia.
With headquarters in Cambridge, and regional offices across the country, employing more than 400 people across the UK, NIAB provides scientific research, technical services and practical advice to improve the yield, efficiency and resilience of crop production across the arable, forage and horticulture sectors.
NIAB is at the forefront in the development of new and innovative products, services and research to ensure the best and most recent science and information is translated into practice. For example the online and interactive Potato Yield Modelling service from NIAB Digital, ensures on-farm and supply chain profitability is maximised by generating real-time forecasts of total and graded potato yield across the season.
NIAB is also working to improve disease diagnostic technologies for use in the laboratory, field and farm office. Examples showcased at REAP include MinION, the portable genome sequencing technology, and loop-mediated isothermal amplification, known as LAMP.
OlombriaOver 75% of agricultural crops worldwide rely on insects for pollination to ensure increased yields at harvest. In many cases farmers will rent or purchase commercial bee hives during the bloom season. However, the total demand for insect-pollinated crops is increasing five times as fast as available hives. Add to this that the number of wild pollinators is steadily declining, and there is a direct risk to many crops that threatens food security.
Olombria uses specific species of flies to supplement bees as primary pollinators. Flies already do about 30% of the world’s pollination, but the Olombria technology substantially increases their effectiveness. We use advanced, natural chemical signaling and mapping technologies to choreograph their behaviour, placing them just where the crops need them to be.

Small Robot CompanySmall Robot Company aims to offer robots to farmers through a Farming as a Service (FaaS) model comprising hardware and a software service. Farmers would pay a per hectare subscription fee for a robotic hardware service which digitises the farm, and delivers crop care at per-plant precision.
The robots take care of all the feeding, seeding, and weeding. When one of these robots is needed, it turns up and does its job. When it is finished, it is taken away. This makes it very low risk for farmers to trial and adopt. It also means that farmers no longer have to worry about buying, storing or maintenance of most crop care machinery and equipment.

We work at the forefront of innovation in high value sectors including telecommunications, transport, defence, retail, energy, manufacturing and agri-business. We help clients develop new capabilities, design, manage and deliver innovation programs, from background research and definition of problem statement to bespoke methodology and models, proof of concept and implementation.
Our services can enable organisations in the agri-tech sector to respond more dynamically to market opportunities. For example, the Smith Institute has experience in translating your knowledge and data into models, algorithms or toolboxes for advanced visualisation, decision-making and operational optimisation. We have substantial experience in data science applications gained from numerous collaborations, organising data science workshops and delivering projects which have large data components.
At REAP we will exhibit a demo of a tool recently developed that turns historical observations and current weather forecasts into predictions on crop readiness. It allows the user to explore multiple scenarios before and during a growing season and perform "what if" analysis.
University of EssexOur stand will showcase Robot-Fish - a robot which looks like a fish, can swim like a fish and is autonomous. It is fitted with various sensors that help Robot-Fish to move and also allow it to collect data. There will be videos of Robot-Fish 'in action' running in the background and the model will be available for delegates to see.
We will also be focusing on manipulating plant processes (photosynthesis, WUE, sensors, ability to with stand abiotic stress) to improve plant growth and crop yield and state-of-the art techniques for monitoring plant performance. This will include molecular biosensors and novel phenotyping approaches developed in-house at Essex, many of which are finding applications in industry.
Hands-on activities will include thermography for monitoring stomatal performance as well as hand-held instrumentation for monitoring photosynthetic efficiency and plant stress.
University of HertfordshireThe University of Hertfordshire has recently launched the Hertfordshire Science Partnership which leverages the state-of-the-art facilities and academic expertise at the University to boost the dynamic agri-technology and life sciences sector in the UK.
