Innovation and tech in action at Cereals LIVE
There is nothing quite like seeing tech in action to understand how it works and how it can be beneficial on-farm, which is why Cereals LIVE will be putting demos right at growers’ fingertips.

From state-of-the-art robotics, to autonomous tractors and electronic weeding, Cereals LIVE will have it all available in video demonstrations in the brand new Innovation and Tech Demo ring, says event director, Alli McEntyre. “It’s a brave new world for farming, with innovation driving sustainability and efficiency. Being able to see the most cutting-edge technology in action will give farmers an insight into where their businesses could be headed very soon.”

So what will growers be able to see online?

The Small Robot Company will be demonstrating its robot weed mapping service, launched in November 2019. Hailed as a technical milestone, it is the world’s first service for individual plant mapping at a broadacre scale and provides farmers with a per-plant view of their fields.

Delivered using its robust commercial robot Tom, it can cover 20ha per day autonomously and can distinguish plant details at submillimetre resolution, with less than one millimetre per pixel resolution on the ground.
