Barclays Eagle Lab

Agri-EPI lends expertise to soil-focused Barclays Eagle Lab event

Understanding soil health

Agri-EPI Projects and Technical Manager, Freddie Reed, will be speaking at one of three Barclays Eagle Labs’ webinars focusing on soil on Wednesday 13 May at 18.00.

Freddie will be offering insight into how sensors and testing have the potential to help farmers improve soil health.

Freddie said:

“Technology has the potential to help us understand much more about what is going on in our soil. The more we understand the more important we realise our soil is for both environmental sustainability and productivity.

“I’ll be looking at the new sensors, tests and technologies are coming over the horizon to help farmers improve their soil health and explaining what the Agri-EPI Satellite Farm Network is doing in this important space.”

Barclays’ national network of Eagle Labs supports individuals, businesses and corporates innovate and grow, across a broad range of different sectors, including Agri-Tech. Agri-EPI collaborates with the Eagle Labs agri-tech team in a number of areas.

In addition to the soil sensors event on 13th May, a virtual meeting on 20th May will look at cover crops and healthy soil, while the third session on 27th May explores carbon sequestration.
