Cambridge Global Challenges


Focusing on emerging farming practices and agri-tech that work with nature, the conference enables dialogue between researchers, technologists, regulators and early adopters about science, relevant metrics and consistent standards.

Soil tillage has led to soil erosion at rates that threaten sustainable food supply. As a result, farming practices that work with nature are gaining momentum.  But for the whole value chain to embrace this challenge we need a dialogue based on good science, relevant metrics and consistent standards. 

REAP is looking at how today’s best practice is being enhanced by emerging agri-tech. Early adopters share their experiences from the field, regulators outline future strategy, and researchers and technologists provide insights into emerging agri-tech developments.
