Agri-Tech Week 2016

Shiny Kit & Smart Drivers – Putting Technology to Work – Thursday 10 November 2016
For the third year running, the Royal Norfolk Agricultural Association is delighted to be a partner in Agri-Tech Week. Founded in 2014 by Agri-Tech East, this unique week of events and activities showcases excellence in innovation across the Agri-tech value chain by brokering links and fostering new relationships between businesses, researchers and government.

Our event focuses on arable crops and seeks to address three big questions:

  • What’s the latest thinking in crop production and protection technologies and where can we derive value from this?
  • Can farmers realise the full extent of performance-enhancing developments in precision farming systems and techniques?
  • What higher-level skills development must we prioritise in the next generation of machinery operators and from where will we get the best return on investment?

Through a programme of presentations, demonstrations and discussions, delegates will be able to update their understanding of the key issues facing the arable sector and look at how new technologies are being applied to solve them. The programme includes the annual RNAA Leadership Lecture which, this year, will be given by Professor Rob Edwards, Head of the School of Agriculture, Food and Rural Development, Newcastle University. In addition, practical and interactive field-based activities from John Deere and Ben Burgess product specialists will illustrate the effect that machine optimisation and precision farming techniques have on achieving maximum productivity and efficiency.
