Farmplan Webinar Week: Farming in the clouds

What does farming in the clouds mean?

What does the future of farming hold?

There are so many new technologies available to farmers and seemingly an increasing number of demands required from farmers, that farming today is complicated. However with complexity comes a demand for simplicity, providing the tools and techniques that allow farmers to make clear decisions based on evidence.

We might be heading for an ever more digital future, and some may say “Farming in the clouds”, but this digital future will provide accurate, real time information allowing for faster more accurate decision making affecting every aspect of modern farming.

Join our Head of Agriculture, Mark Chatterton, Sam Watson Jones from Small Robot Company and Oliver McEntyre from Barclays to look at the future of digital farming.
