Technological advances in robotics and Artificial Intelligence (AI) hold the potential to transform some of the greatest challenges facing the future of global agriculture.

Precision agriculture has widely been regarded as a solution to many of the challenges facing the farming sector. Food producers look to feed a growing global population amid increasing frequency of extreme weather due to climate change; an increase in the tolerance of pests and weeds and an equally increasing level of regulation to protect the environment.

N8 AgriFood has carried out projects across the agri-tech space, contributing to the development of novel technologies while also investigating farmer behaviour and barriers to technology adoption.

Here is how N8 AgriFood has been supporting this vital sector, influencing the challenges facing global agriculture and grasping opportunities for innovation, investment and commercial growth.
