The role of agri-tech in the journey towards more economically and environmentally sustainable farming is the focus of Agri-EPI annual conference on 28 October.
The free, online event will bring together farmers and the wider agri-food industry, technology developers and start-ups, investors, and researchers.
A series of round-table discussions will explore the role of data and technology in improving productivity and profit while enhancing the environment. Farmers involved in Agri-EPI’s Satellite Farm Network will join the conversation.
Lisa Williams, Agri-EPI’s Director of Business Development said: “Drawing on our links with every part of the agri-tech landscape, Agri-EPI’s aim is to bring together a diverse group of participants to the conference. We are looking forward to hearing their perspectives and expertise on what’s required to deliver effective new technology that really makes a difference to farmers as they focus on sustaining their businesses during this time of transition for the industry.”
The winners of Agri-EPI’s Agri-tech Excellence Award will also be announced at the event. Supported by Marks & Spencer, Syngenta, Leyton, Barclays and Kubota, the Awards recognise companies that have had a beneficial impact on-farm.
Held on the virtual conference platform Hopin, the conference will also provide a useful networking opportunity.
