Intro

What will the arable farm of 2027 look like and how will it differ from today? That is the premise of the latest publication from Arable Farming magazine.

 

Sponsored by Agrii, Anglian Water, Bayer and NFU Mutual, the 24-page supplement examines likely changes in global politics, developments in integrated agronomy, the changing environmental factors, genetic technology, growing use of data, robotics and machinery and the education and skills requirements for the future. All of which are likely to have significant impact on the way UK arable farmers are operating a decade from now.

No matter how it is collected, there is a broad agreement across the industry that by 2027 we will have a huge amount of data to base agronomic decisions on.

While predictions for the ideal farmer, agronomist, farm managers and other support roles for the Arable Farm of 2027 abound, it is not so easy to see where these multi-talented and data-savvy recruits will come from.
