Our aim is to help agri-businesses understand the options available for larger data sets that may require more work to derive better value. This event will be a brokerage opportunity for those with challenges and possible solutions to meet.

Following the presentations delegates can take part in short, private “clinics” to help understand in more detail how to get maximum value from their data.

We’ll be using our express networking format to give delegates 15 minutes each to sketch out the problem (farmers) and whether there is a solution available (providers) with the opportunity to follow up if appropriate after the event.

Speakers: Colin McKinnon, CEO, Institute for Environmental Analytics
Cristina Sargent, Smith Institute
David Flanders, CEO, Agrimetrics
Case study - Patrick Joice, Uphouse Farm
