Embracing innovation in agriculture

Innovation in agriculture is the topic of insights shared by East Devon chartered accountants Thomas Westcott.

Its agricultural consultant, Peter Brown, has published an insightful feature that acknowledges the willingness of local farmers to embrace new technologies and ideas.

Use of data and the link to efficiency is highlighted – along with genomics and the use of robotics in arable production.

Mr Brown explains how greater use of data is making it possible for more farmers to micro-manage everything from the seed rate, fertiliser use and agrochemical application.

While some technologies may sound far-fetched and ‘something for someone else in the future’, he points to every-day tech that prompted the same thoughts when they first came into use.

If you are looking for an uplifting read that specifically relates to agriculture, Mr Brown’s feature will both inform and inspire you.

Thomas Westcott has 17 offices across Devon and Somerset and employs 220 people.

Led by 29 partners, it is one of the largest independent accountancy practices in the South West.

The company is a member of the CBI and is a fully accredited member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW) and other professional bodies.
