Meeting challenges in food production through precision agriculture
Keele University is hosting a conference on Sensors in Precision Agriculture on 3rd – 4th December 2018.
With the ever present challenge of increasing food production without adverse environment impacts, there is huge potential for the agriculture sector to benefit from opportunities presented by the decreasing cost and complexity of sensors and the accompanying increase in computing power.
If we are to achieve the goal of designing innovative and practical solutions for modern agriculture it is essential that end users such as farmers and policy makers are able to discuss their needs and technology gaps with solution providers from academia and industry.
Keele University, with support from the British Council, Newton Fund, and Thai Research Fund, is hosting a conference focused on ‚ÄúSensors in Precision Agriculture‚Äù on 3rd and 4th December at Keele Hall, Keele University.
