The World Agri-Tech innovation Summit’s ninth global forum will bring together corporates, innovators and investors from across the agriculture and food production supply chain to uncover solutions and business models that will enable the transition to a low carbon economy.

Bridging the digital with the physical, the summit will feature live-streamed interactive fireside chats, high level panel discussions and unscripted roundtable debates, with a live studio in London for speakers and guests who are able to join in person. We are also ramping up our start up arena and business hours drop-in session to create an interactive and effective networking platform that will enable new ideas and business connections to thrive.

Streamlining Data Collection and Environmental Reporting from Table Back to the Farm

Tuesday September 28 – 4:40 pm – 5:20 pm BST

  • Data collection and performance monitoring will become increasingly important for farmers in order to demonstrate compliance with carbon and CAP eco-schemes. What new realities are the farming community and food industry waking up to?
  • From on-farm sensors and IoT to new satellite constellations such as SpaceX and Oneweb, what data collection technologies and platforms are needed to solve the first mile problem in food production?
  • What cost-effective and scalable methods are available for field-level verification of farm activity? What partnerships and collaborations are needed to help automate, scale and streamline reporting to achieve a robust and auditable verification process?


  • Mark Jarman, Head of Agriculture
