New sets of technologies and ideas are evolving to automatically collect data, with development work needed to interpret this data to improve management.

Much of this is technology led but requires considerable development and research so the management applications can move into practice.

SRUC’s Smarter Farming technology in practice have involved significant interactions with small technology companies and some significant grant awards. The current lead is held through a series of projects using various technologies to collect both scientific data and latterly to use as real and potential management tools.
