Farm machinery

Currently under development, we are investigating potential research projects in the following areas:

  • Systems to facilitate more effective application of agro-chemicals.
  • Robotics for planting, monitoring and harvesting crops.
  • Robotic systems for monitoring and milking dairy animals.
  • Systems to monitor feed quality and/or responses to animal feeding in real time.
  • Sensors to monitor live-weight gain and potential carcase characteristics in live animals.
  • Use of drones and satellites within arable production.
