Satisfying increased demand for food and biofuels is crucial for human security.  The objective of ‘sustainable intensifaction’ – more output with less resources – is technically very challenging.  However new engineering and scientific advances offer unparalleled opportunities for creativity.

Institution of Agricultural Engineers Annual Conference, sponsored by The Knowledge Transfer Network, taking place at Cranfield University on Wednesday 21st May 2014.

This conference will explore how engineering could enable a step-change in agricuoltural productivity, by enabling the adoption of entirely new agricultural systems.
