A sustainable future for agriculture
10am, Friday 13 November
As part of AgriTech Week 2020 NIAB hosted a virtual seminar 'Soil health and circular economy; A sustainable future for agriculture'.
British agriculture is under increasing pressure from wetter winters and hotter summers. Summer rainfall patterns are expected to shift, making extremes of drought and downfall increasingly likely. Research at NIAB is developing the tools British farming needs to face this adversity and to continue producing food in a sustainable manner. These talks outline the breadth of this research, from large-scale field-based agronomic field trials, to novel salad production using hydroponics, to collaboration with businesses working in the circular economy.
ARTIS Training Events include some at Innovation Hub. Further information regarding ARTIS can be found at www.artistraining.com
ARTIS provides training to growers, farmers and managers in the food supply chain to boost productivity through applying the latest agri-tech knowledge and research.
Here at the Eastern Agri-Tech Innovation Hub we are proud to exhibit paintings by local artists.
