This year’s IAgrE Conference focuses on ‘Big Data’ – how can farmers, agribusinesses and researchers gain real value from the enormous quantities of data gathered from recent technological developments? This Conference will explore how ‘Big Data’ is being used to improve agricultural practices, how farmers and technologists should work together to extract the value of the data and identify future development opportunities.
