UK: Technology showcase inspires ag industry
Hosted by the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (DBEIS) in Westminster, the event attracted politicians, policymakers, agri-industry stakeholders, scientific researchers and farmers.
The event gave them the chance to experience the future potential of the latest agri-technology innovation and to understand the implications for UK farmers.
Welcoming the Syngenta showcase to the DBEIS, Minister of State for Universities, Science, Research and Innovation, Jo Johnson MP, highlighted the role of technology to improve the efficiency of agricultural production; to produce more food from fewer resources and with less impact on the environment.
“Syngenta is clearly playing an important role throughout the UK in providing those technologies,” he said.
“Science and technology is at the centre of our vision for the future of the economy,” added Mr Johnson.
He highlighted how agri-tech is an important part of where the Department is investing money, and also stressed the importance to put the technological advances into use in as timely a manner as possible.
David Youle, Syngenta Head of Bioscience, believes these new technologies will play a critical role in the development of sustainable, next-generation solutions for farmers and growers.
“Agricultural industries are in a period of significant change. Evolving markets, societal expectations and regulatory demands require careful consideration for the way farmers will grow crops in the future,” he reported.
“Higher crop yields and improved crop quality must be achieved alongside a clear focus on reducing environmental impacts, delivered with ever greater levels of precision, measurement and mitigation."
Holistic product design and precision application techniques are changing the ways in which we develop and deploy technology solutions,” he pointed out. “Research being undertaken in the United Kingdom will play a significant role in supporting farmers to grow crops ever more efficiently in the future.”
