11. Digital Agriculture: Precision technology for improved sustainability and yields

This episode features researchers working in precision agriculture, or digital agriculture – where new technology can be used to improve soil quality and crop productivity by working out the right intervention needed in the right place at the right time to give targeted interventions.

Professor Kevin McDonnell will discuss how he is developing new technologies and methods to help farmers at home and abroad reach their challenging production and sustainability goals.

Dr Mary Harty, a soil health researcher interested in soil health, describes how digital technology is providing farmers with ways to protect their soil, reduce costs and improve their crop yields.
