On Saturday January 26th 2019 the Farming Today programme took a look at agricultural technology: from robot pickers and smart water management systems to precision pest control, the future of farming is high-tech: but what exactly will it look like?
Part of the programme concentrated on the Agri-Epi Centre Hub at Cranfield, one of
four Agri-Tech centres established by the UK government. The Centres’ focus on the delivery of research, development, demonstration and training on precision agriculture and engineering for the livestock, arable, horticulture and aquaculture sectors.
Professor Jane Rickson, IAgrE President took part in the programme and talked about sustainable agriculture.
