Farming can often be overlooked as an integral part of the South West’s economy of innovation – and Tech South West is aiming to change that.

From improving efficiency in crop production to automating supply chains, precision farming to cutting edge biotech research, the farming ecosystem is a hotbed of innovation delivering positive impact for communities within the South West and beyond.
