Webinar - Introduction to Warwick Agri-Tech

Thursday, 25th January, 4pm to 5pm (UK time) - in Microsoft Teams.

The University of Warwick recently announced the formation of Warwick Agri-Tech to help the future of farming with automation – addressing issues such as labour shortages, food insecurity and loss of biodiversity. It will combine two world class faculties at WMG at The University of Warwick and the School of Life Sciences (SLS), working with the High Value Manufacturing Catapult to spearhead automation in areas such as horticulture, crops and forestry. Robots will be a key tool for farmers as food production comes under increasing pressure.

Warwick Agri-Tech was born out of an initial project which developed a crop monitoring robot (Crombot) to move autonomously up and down glasshouses and check fruit for ripeness. Officially launched on 20th December, with a visit from the Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs (DEFRA) Chief Scientific Advisor, Professor Gideon Henderson, Warwick Agri-Tech will continue its research on several key projects.

During the webinar Emilio Loo Monardez, WMG and Dave Chandler, Warwick Crop Centre will talk about some of the projects that Warwick Agritech are undertaking currently and their plans for the future.
