Virtual Innovation Hub demonstrates spirit of innovation in challenging times

Watch video from Dr Belinda Clarke, (Director of Agri-TechE) and Mark Nicholas (Managing Director of RNAA)

The uncertainty faced by all businesses over the last year with the pandemic, is the everyday experience of farmers and it is driving innovation. It is noticeable how technologies that seek to improve prediction of disease and weather and improve timing of interventions such as sowing, spraying and harvesting have grown in maturity over the 6 years that Agri-TechE has hosted the Innovation Hub at the Royal Norfolk Show; in partnership with the Royal Norfolk Agricultural Association (RNAA).

The Royal Norfolk Show is one of the UK’s oldest agricultural shows and it will celebrate 175 years in 2022. It has always been ahead of its time and sharing innovative practice was the original inspiration for the show.

Although sadly the show will not be happening this year, this fine tradition is being kept alive in the Innovation Hub, which for the second year is going online as a virtual show, rather than physical demonstrations in a marquee at the showground.
