Struggling to know how much carbon you’ve captured? Want to get a handle on the health of your soils? Trying to check for improvements in the quality of your water? Want to measure how much you have boosted your biodiversity?

We explore how technology can help agriculture deliver environmental benefits alongside sustainable food production and the achievement of industry net zero targets.

The UK’s new Environment and Land Management(ELM) scheme will see a see a shift towards incentivising farmers to deliver “public goods” in exchange for public money. The National Farmers’ Union also has an ambitious plan to reach net zero by 2040.

It is still unclear how to measure, monitor and manage many of the elements of these “public goods” – a major risk for farmers as they transition into the new system.

This event aims to provide an opportunity to hear from farmers and advisors that have participated in early trials and also from the technologists and researchers that are developing techniques and tools to assist them.

Join us as we explore and showcase agri-tech enablers for ELMs that can give farm businesses the edge in coping with the forthcoming changes.
