Experimental agri-tech backed

Sweden’s innovation agency Vinnova has awarded more than 35.7 million Swedish kronor (€3.4m) to six “test bed” projects that will conduct data-intensive experiments into environmental technology.

The aim of the funding is to give farmers tools to speed up decisions that could affect the profitability and environmental sustainability of their farms, Vinnova said in an announcement on 1 October.

One of the projects, which will be run by the RISE Research Institutes of Sweden in collaboration with the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences in Uppsala, was awarded kr8m. Vinnova said it would use “linked fields with different crops and infrastructure to collect and analyse large amounts of data from the farm’s production system”.
