Precision agriculture has been a key topic in agriculture for many years but is still to see mass adoption. Meanwhile, mobile robotics is maturing as a technology and is now being introduced commercially in other industries. Can precision agriculture benefit from the inclusion of robotics, and what challenges remain?

Eliot Dixon, Agri-EPI Centre’s Data and Automation Lead, has a background in robotics and research/software engineering. Eliot is well-placed to cover the most pressing issues surrounding robotics in agriculture.  

About Agri-EPI Centre:
 the Agricultural Engineering Precision Innovation Centre (Agri-EPI) aims to accelerate the research, development and adoption of precision agriculture and engineering technology. It is one of four UK agri-tech centres and provides a testbed for the next generation of farming techniques and technology, including sensors, imaging and robotics. Commercial field trials take place within a UK-wide network of 28 satellite farms and look to boost productivity, reduce emissions and increase profitability in the agri-food chain with world-class R&D facilities, and academic and industry partners exploring how to optimise the performance of highly complex agricultural production and processing systems.
