Innovation & Tech Demo Ring
The New Holland T6.180 Methane Power is the world’s first 100% methane powered production tractor and is key to completing the virtuous cycle of the Energy Independent Farm℠ system. Farmers grow crops and use waste products to generate biomethane, which powers the tractor, which, in turn, helps to grow those very crops.
RootWave is the leading solution to organically kill weeds without using chemicals and uses electricity to boil weeds inside out from the root upwards. RootWave™ Pro is for professionals and uses electricides to organically treat all types of weeds, including invasive species.
Small Robot Company's vision is to make food production sustainable and increasing farm outputs globally. Their farmbots Tom, Dick and Harry will plant, feed and weed arable crops autonomously, with minimal waste. Plus the integration of Rootwave's weed zapping technology will make autonomous non-chemical weeding a reality.
FarmDroid is an innovative field robot that helps farmers and plant growers reduce the costs for sowing and weeding of crops while keeping it CO2 neutral and organic. FarmDroid ApS was founded by Jens Warming and Kristian Warming together with Innovation Environment Syddansk Innovation A/S and robot expert Esben Østergaard.
MagGrow is a spraying technology that helps farmers grow more by using less. The system, which has been three years in development, gives better coverage than conventional crop spraying systems and also reduces spray drift up to 70%.
The ground-breaking Hands Free Hectare (HFHa), run by Harper Adams University and Precision Decisions, which aimed to be the first in the world to plant, tend and harvest a crop with only autonomous vehicles and drones, has come to an end after a successful harvest.
The easyconnect system is designed for easier and safer handling of crop protection products and recycling of containers. It allows liquid crop protection products to be directly transferred from their original container to the spray tank and to accurately measure the volume of the chemical being transferred. This significantly reduces operator exposure and environmental risks from splashing or spilling.
Modern technologies now allow us to spy on crops 24/7, gathering data as never before – but more than that they open a window into a world unseen by the naked eye.
OPICO believes that mechanical weeding is a commercially viable means of herbicide-free weed control for both organic and conventional farmers and has introduced a range of interrow cultivators from Austrian firm Hatzenbichler. OPICO’s interrow hoes use the Tillett and Hague camera guidance system believed to be the most accurate on the market.
Precision Ag Technologies - Digital solutions walkaround
Syngenta's New Farming Technology team looks at Application Technology. Nozzle technology can help to ensure pre-emergence sprays are delivered on target by minimising risk of drift, and have been proven to achieve very high levels of Black-grass control.
