AHDB to host farm data workshops

2nd Jul 2018 / By Alistair Driver

AHDB is running a series of regional workshops from the end of this month looking at how to use farm data more effectively. 

Ensuring data is used beyond the farm gate in a fair, open, transparent and compliant way is a critical step to making the best use of this information, AHDB chief strategy officer Tom Hind said.

It has teamed up with agri-software business Rezare Systems, which have experience of running a similar project in New Zealand, to consult on creating a best practice guide to sharing farm data. 

The workshops will be a mix of presentations and interactive sessions in groups to gain feedback and understand the key issues and opportunities around sharing and using farmer's data through an effective set of best practice principles.

"We will be asking farmers, processors, supermarkets, machinery companies, auction market associations, breeders, representative bodies, the government and banks to help shape the data sharing principles, along with the agri-tech centres, academics, animal and crop health companies and environmental organisations," Mr Hind said.

The workshops:

July 26, 10.00am - 2.00pm: York

July 27, 10.00am - 2.00pm: Cambridge

July 31, 10.00am  - 2.00pm: Edinburgh 

August 1, 10.00am - 2.00pm: Bristol 

Registration from 9.45
