Agriculture is an important industry in Scotland. Scotland’s farmers, crofters and growers produce output worth around £2.9 billion a year, and are responsible for much of Scotland’s £5 billion food and drinks exports.

The agriculture industry as a whole is facing up to the challenges of improving productivity and sustainability, which will require new technology solutions to drive the industry forward.
