Smart production for sustainable food systems

Plant production is a vital part of many sustainable food systems. At the same time, food systems have to protect natural resources, contribute to improve the livelihood of stakeholders and to strengthen communities at all levels. In order to cover all these challenges at once and to ensure a sustainable food production by Thai farmers more innovative methods and smart solutions are needed. The AGRITECHNICA ASIA & HORTI ASIA Regional Summit offers the unique opportunity to both, getting insights of upcoming international trends in food production and improving local production systems considering the needs of farmers and markets.

30 November 2021, 4 p.m. to 5.30 p.m. (GMT)

Working with our UK partners the Agricultural Engineers Association (AEA) and Department for International Trade (DIT) and leading commentators and influencers from the industry, we will be holding a series of events for UK farmers and growers to attend, by invitation, that will develop this theme and offer a privileged preview to AGRITECHNICA 2022.

What to expect

Our first virtual event, Green Efficiency – New opportunities for British farming – will take place on Tuesday, 30 November 2021, 4 p.m. - 5.30 p.m. (GMT) and will focus on the theme Achieving Net Zero in Agriculture. With the recent UN IPCC report setting out the scale of the problem that faces the world and issuing a ‘reality check’ for policymakers, and in the wake of the COP26 climate change summit being hosted by Britain in the autumn, this event could not be timelier and more relevant.

What will be covered:

  • What is the role of mechanisation in the future of sustainable land use?
  • Will machines and technology be bigger, smaller, smarter or autonomous?
  • How will they be powered – sustainably?
  • Will future machinery ownership be shared, owned outright or under a subscription model (where machinery becomes part of a service)?
  • How do we optimise agricultural engineering solutions when the rules around ‘efficiency’ are changing?
  • Who’s driving the Research and Innovation here and responding to what market and policy needs?

Our Speakers and Panelists

  • Tom Bradshaw, Vice President & Farmer NFU
  • Belinda Clark, Director at Agri-Tech E
  • Parmjit Chima, Head of Engineering Department – Harper Adams University
  • Adrian Winnett - Former President and Board member of the AEA
