Turning Data into Decisions in AgriFood

Wed, 22 Nov, London

For example, data can help farmers to optimise inputs and adjust crops and land management regimes depending on many variable conditions between the fields, crop varieties, and climatic conditions. Data can also help suppliers of crop protection products to produce more accurate recommendations, or to gather evidence on their efficacy with more precision, reducing their use and environmental impact. This SCI Agrisciences Group and KTN event will focus on key needs of the AgriFood sector in using data, discuss the existing barriers, and present a number of potential solutions and joint initiatives.Read more >>
