Uniting Forces of Innovation: Future Farming Expo Welcomes UKUAT and Farm Tech Society

As the agricultural landscape evolves and sustainability takes centre stage, the Future Farming Expo 2023 is set to redefine the Scottish agricultural show scene. The Future Farming Expo has taken a momentous stride towards revolutionising agriculture by joining forces with two influential organisations: UK Urban AgriTech (UKUAT) and FarmTech Society. This partnership brings together the UK's leading authority on urban agriculture and a global non-profit association focused on Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA). Together, they are co-locating a conference at the highly anticipated Future Farming Expo 2023 in Scotland. This collaboration represents a significant milestone in advancing sustainable farming practices, driving innovation, and ensuring the resilience of our food systems.
