Innovation in Arable Farming: Technologies for Sustainable Farming Systems

Organised by EIT Food 

Explore how innovative, digital technologies can help achieve sustainable intensification of arable farming systems.

Lead Academic: Dr Alice Mauchline

Programme Description:
Interested to learn about precision agriculture and sustainable intensification and what impact can these have on farming systems? This is a FREE, three-week online programme.

Intensification of arable farming systems can be achieved through the adoption of innovative technologies, without negatively impacting the environment. However, uptake of these technologies by farmers across the EU has been limited.

On this course, you will explore evidence-based information that outlines the benefits and challenges of adopting new technologies within the EU. You will learn from farmers who have adopted agri-tech on their farms to enhance production, while meeting environmental and social responsibilities, and hear how they overcame any barriers to adoption.
