Welcome to the final week of Innovation in Arable Farming: Technologies for Sustainable Farming Systems, where you’ll be considering the social and environmental aspects of precision farming.

You’ll continue to hear from our farmers as they share their thoughts and experiences and we hope that you will continue to do the same in the comments.

By the end of the week you will have:

  • An understanding of the social impacts of precision farming and how these might be evaluated.

  • Explored the effects that precision farming has on the environment when compared to traditional farming techniques.

  • Reflected on your learning throughout the course and created an action plan to take forward with your business.

Firstly, you’ll look at the wider impact that changes in farming methods can have and how they affect different areas of the agricultural workforce.

Let’s get started.
