Harper Adams University is the birthplace of Hands Free Hectare - the internationally renowned and world’s first to grow and harvest a crop using autonomous machines.
This year we will be bringing together the global leaders from industry, academia and farming to hear about the latest initiatives in autonomous farm machinery, the enabling communication technologies and farms that are early adopters of the technology.
This is a unique opportunity to expand your network, connect with the top industry players and see autonomous technology in action. The conference includes an exhibition of leading autonomous farming equipment and service companies and student projects. The day’s activities commence with a talk from James Wong, a renowned Kew-trained Botanist, Science Writer and broadcaster and concludes with exciting demonstrations of autonomous technology in action at the Hands Free Farm.
