Landwards Conference 2022 Engineering Sustainability in Agriculture

Share this Event:

What can engineers do about soil health? The answer is everything and this year’s IAgrE Landwards conference will explore how soil management technologies will change the way we farm the land to produce food.

The conference takes place on 1st November at the Peterborough Suite, East of England Conference Centre in Peterborough.

The loss of this key ingredient in food production will have disastrous consequences. Intensive agriculture especially broad acre crop production is having an increasingly negative effect on the soil, resulting in processes such as erosion, compaction, organic matter loss to name a few.

To understand the key issues the line-up of presenters will take delegates through a selection of developments in the agricultural industry and how these can bring us closer to sustainable food production, supporting carbon net zero and other environmental opportunities and challenges faced by farmers and growers.

Presenters include:

  • George Sly managing director at Horizon Agriculture Limited will provide an insight into his company’s vision and the concepts being applied to their seed drill development. Their no-till approach is driving a number of innovative features and technology being employed on their products. This importantly provides a host of efficiency benefits for the customer, whilst working towards a sustainable future.
  • Ben Taylor Davies of RegenBen will offer delegates a fascinating journey through his farming career, specifically how to farm sustainably in harmony with the environment. The audience will be taken through Ben’s regenerative agriculture approach and how it is being practically applied in a commercial farming enterprise and what the future holds.
  • Ole Green CEO and founder of AgroIntelli’s presentation is Sustainable Mechanisation – a New Mechanisation on the Land. Ole will explore a new kind of agricultural mechanisation offering some great sustainability credentials. AgroIntelli’s Robotti product is light in its footprint to ease soil compaction, driverless in operation to reduce costs and perfect for tasks such as mechanical weeding to reduce chemical use.
