Agri-tech development

Technological advancements with the power to transform the world's agriculture are already underway, spurring what many are calling a "fourth agricultural revolution”.  Developments in AI, big data, and machine learning promise to improve data driven productivity and yields, alongside new – and sometimes controversial – biological techniques, such as gene editing. We empower businesses to succeed in this exciting, yet challenging, transition of innovation in agriculture.

Our clients range from established players – the suppliers of chemistry and equipment – through to the start-ups that are disrupting the market. We work across the agriculture and food value chain, from the lab, to the field, and on to the plate. We understand the drivers for change, the trends in farming practices and consumer choices, and we deliver the advice, technology and innovation to meet these demands in biotechnologies and agri-tech development.

Our cross-industry experience means we have experts across a range of skills and disciplines, from applied science to advanced engineering, that bring benefits to the agri-tech business. Our projects address various issues, including monitoring, automation and processing.

We provide technical advisory and product development services in areas such as:

  • The future of sustainable agriculture and food production.
  • Next generation food production systems, such as indoor and vertical farming.
  • Novel sensing solutions.
  • AI applications.
  • Smart, data-driven, efficient interventions. Control in the field and on the farm.
  • Automation in agriculture, such as precision delivery systems.
  • Animal health monitoring, diagnostics, and alerting systems.
  • Lab grown animal products, and other novel food creation and processing technologies.
  • Non-chemical crop protection technologies.
  • Biodiversity and monoculture management.
