Bringing The Outside In – Innovating for Controlled Environment Agriculture

Vertical, indoor or urban – the technologies for production of high quality, consistent crops grown in highly controlled conditions are developing rapidly, making indoor commercial production at scale a viable proposition. We’ll be exploring the new technologies, the business models and the potential for scaling, as well as considering the viability of “out of the box” modular solutions for commercial applications and farm diversification opportunities.

insect swarm

Robots on farms are ideally suited to do the jobs that are dirty, dangerous, difficult or dull. Much of the innovation to date has focussed on developing high-spec individual machines, but the agricultural labour force of the future is likely to be boosted by teams of small robots working together – with their individual contributions combining to make a cheaper, more effective or more intelligent system. Here we will explore the prospect of swarm robotics and the potential for its…

soil VESS scoring

Investment in digestors across the UK has brought benefits of managing waste, generating energy on-farm, and generating a home-grown fertiliser and soil conditioner. Yet rigorous, quantitative analysis of the benefits to soils from digestate application are lacking. We will discuss the outputs of a 2-year Innovative Farmers project designed to investigate the impact of digestate application to soils, and the role of cover crops in improving efficacy of digestate by helping retain nutrients, maintain soil organic matter and ensure ease…

Internet of agri-things cloud and icons

Machine-to-machine communication and the "Internet of Things" (IoT) are predicted to transform farming. But seamless cross-talk and integration between devices, machinery and systems is still on the wish-list of most farmers. Here we’ll have an update the new technologies, how close the industry is to overcoming the challenges of inter-operability, and explore how to overcome the obstacles to enable remote management of crops, livestock – and the entire connected farm. Sign up to our monthly newsletter to get updates on the programme…
