Where does R&D fit into agri-tech?



There are numerous real-world problems affecting farmers in the UK and around the world such as climate change, bigger populations, extreme weather events and soil erosion. R&D in the agri-tech sector is therefore applicable to any technological innovation that aids progression in:

> Feeding a growing global population
> Relieving pressure on resources & natural resources
> Proofing against environmental threats and resilience including disease and disaster
> Reducing energy use
> Preventing waste in harvest and storage
> Improving labour productivity through robotics and machines
> Creating better resource management
> Advancing Biotechnology
> Finding better methods of soil management & smart irrigation
> Creating innovation in vertical farming (more yield on less space)
