UK: Innovation Summit promotes 21st century agri-tech solutions

The World Agri-Tech Innovation Summit held in London in October was the place to be to discuss the industry’s latest innovations and consider the future of agriculture.

The event attracted more than 500 delegates from 41 countries, hosted a total of 75 presentations and welcomed in excess of 100 startups.

CHAP CEO Fraser Black and Innovation Director Dr Ruth Bastow spent a jam-packed two days talking to global agribusinesses, solution providers, entrepreneurs and investors alike.

The conference program covered the adoption of smart farming, the power of the biologicals, advances in crop protection, gene-editing, robotics and AI, and supply chain traceability.

Charlotte Smith from BBC Radio 4’s Farming Today was there to interview Angie Curtis from Roboscientific (2019 Tesco Agri T-Jam Pitch Day winner) and Brett Begemann, COO at Bayer Crop Science. Mr Begemann noted “the need to provide farmers with relevant and useful information to make better decisions” – a concept that is currently being explored by the Innovation Team at CHAP.
