BP2017 – new hub and wireless sensors on show

Harrogate 22nd & 23rd November We put our new protoype on show on the Knowledge Transfer Network’s Stand at BP2017 in Harrogate.  This event is held once every two years and the “whole of the Potato Industry comes together”. Our new Hub complete with camera communicates wirelessly both with our cloud-based data warehouse and an array of soil and other sensors such as rain gauges.  The feedback was very positive from growers, agronomists and irrigation specialists.  We look forward to supplying the system Q1 2018 ready for the new growing season.

8th November 2017 We explored the potential for using our hubs and sensors for ground truthing.  We also met people who can work with us to deliver cost-effective satellite imagery as our systems mature.

28 th  November 2017 We pitched our concept to the most daunting audience yet: a mixture of technology specialists and agricultural academics.  As Simon Breese opened ‘this is dangerous … very dangerous’.  Nonetheless we received a positive reception and had plenty of conversations which will lead to useful partnerships and alliances.

14 th  September 2017 We presented the results of our findings from an exercise in a trials field of a well known potato producer during May-September 2017.  We identified a number of improvements to the design including the need for more accurate ambient light sensors which will be included in the Mk2 hub which will be available for the 2018 growing season.
