Food & Agriculture

Technologies delivering value

Here are some examples of how advanced technologies are being applied in the Food & Agriculture sector…

Drones, sensors, satellites and wireless cameras

Monitoring crops/stock via phone apps ➔ Saving time and labour costs

Monitoring and analysing soil and environmental data ➔ Maximising natural resources, enabling proactive management, improving soil carbon

Data for predictive modelling to guide robotics, automation and planning ➔ Improving efficiency/yield and reducing use of water, pesticides, fertilisers and energy

Autonomous vehicles and robotics
Biotechnology and genomics
