Cambridge Global Challenges

 

Agr-Tech East network event on water management with speakers from Verdesian, Anglian Water, the Norfolk Rivers Trust and Cranfield University.

Managing water continues to be a major challenge, ensuring the right amount in the right place at the right time. Access to water can dictate farming regimes and influence crop performance, and regulation around water management are driving investment in new solutions, both on and off-farm.

Here we’ll be considering innovative products, services and practices to help re-use, recycle and retain water in the farming ecosystem. With an emphasis on the practical aspects of water management, we’ll be looking at topics such as smart irrigation, monitoring of leaks, soil moisture retention and water storage options.

Date: 
Thursday, 13 September, 2018 - 16:00 to 19:00
Event location: 
Easton Campus, Easton and Otley College, Norwich NR9 5DX
