Wednesday 13th June 3 pm - 5 pm 

Do you want a quick overview of the latest, exciting agri-tech that is emerging in the UK?  

This year Agri-Tech East and Cereals are partnering to host Cereals’ first ever ‘Innovation Insights’.

Agri-Tech East has challenged its members – farmers, technologists, researchers - to summarise their new products, services or research interests in a series of two-minute lightning presentations.

The independent organisation is building a business cluster to facilitate innovation. Director of Agri-Tech East Belinda Clarke explains: “By bringing in new players, many of them from outside the industry, and making it easy for them to network with potential end-users we are seeing new solutions to intransigent problems and accelerating the rate of adoption for new technologies.  

“Cereals is a great opportunity for our members to extend this dialogue and find potential partners and customers. Innovation Insights offers an opportunity to see a snap-shot of the latest developments.”
