With 60% of Britain’s farmland now being managed by precision methods, such as sensor systems, cameras, virtual field maps and GPS-guided tractors, it is not surprising that research is being undertaken to develop the next big step in the world of farming: Drones and driverless tractors. These technologies are fuelling what is being called the “new agricultural revolution”.

Clive Blacker, an arable farmer realised 20 years ago that change was looming and whilst sat on a tractor he thought about the amount of variability in the fields. Every field has its good bits, and every field has its bad bits, however he felt that they were all being treated the same. This was when Blacker began to experiment with nascent technologies such as yield mapping. With the development of the technologies Blacker stated “I think that all of this technology has the potential to make farming far more sustainable as well as profitable”.
