What's on

What happened in 2019

The Future Farm Technology Expo conference programme, put together by the experts at Farmers Weekly, was organised to meet the needs of today’s farmers and answer their budding questions. From the leading academics in their field to futurologists and to farmers who are currently using technology, the programme was full of fascinating content and speakers with a lot say about the direction of our changing industry. Read on to find out more about our conference programmes and get a taster for what's to come in 2020. 

The Programmes

The FFT Expo Conference is made up of two key programmes, so you can discover the latest insight tailored to your needs. We've provided a little more information about each programme below.

Main stage

Join us at our panel of agricultural and farming experts and hear them discuss which technologies you need to be aware of right now. We are keeping an eye on the innovations coming down the line and the technologies specifically relevant for your sector of farming. We look at the benefits for farmers of sharing data, such as more precise prediction of crop disease. This main stage will get you thinking about what information you already have at your fingertips, and how you can use that data to make better farming decisions. 

Innovation theatre

We want to be at the forefront of up and coming innovations in the industry. The innovation theatre will look at the integration of current world-class UK capabilities (digital technologies, artificial intelligence, engineering, biological, environmental and social sciences) and precision approaches both within new novel production systems and traditional agricultural systems to target net zero emissions. We’ll also tackle discussions around a reduction in overseas labour and how we can reduce emissions with on-farm nitrogen production.
