Naturally occurring biological agents and natural product chemistry tools provide the basis for new products for commercial animal, plant and soil management.Find out more »
Advances in diagnostics for soils, crops and livestock can enable early rapid interventions and hopefully preventing disease or maintaining health. But tests need to be simple, cheap and reliable – false positives or the wrong sensitivity can lead to devastating and costly consequences.Find out more »
Calling all young farmers and early career researchers! Join us for a free tour of Frederick Hiam's packaging facility as part of our Young Innovators' Forum series of events.
We'll be taking a tour round some of their purpose built production lines, including parsnip intake (washing and soil removal), packaging store, grading machines, salad lines, cold stores and more.
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.Find out more »
Swarm robotics are teams of small robots working together – with their individual contributions combining to make a cheaper, more effective or more intelligent system.Find out more »
On farm energy production creates an opportunity to diversify - but do the maths stack up? This is your chance to find out about new innovations - from solar to biogas, vibration technology and glasshouse solutions - and hear the experiences of early adopters.Find out more »
The so-called circular economy aims to reduce waste, extract maximum value from natural resources and extend the potential use of by-products. We’ll be discussing potential uses and added value of “waste” in the agri-food system.Find out more »
Changes to the UK climate will impact our ability to produce food - predictions include periods of too much or too little water, increasing average and extreme temperatures, and sea level rise.
However with the right approaches and technologies there is an opportunity to mitigate these impacts and to embrace the change.
If constraints such as water availability and soil fertility are managed, agriculture and forestry may be able to increase production with warmer weather and longer growing seasons. Offering adaptation-related goods and services may provide economic opportunities for UK businesses in global markets.
So our next Hackathon is calling on you to rise to the biggest challenge and think about solutions.Find out more »
