Agri-Tech: The Technological Revolution

Support your farm’s future with the UK’s leading rural insurer

Sustainable and profitable farming has often involved finding ways to use new technology to put food on people's plates.

We’ve seen huge amounts of change and technological innovations in the last century and are proud to support farmers through these ever-changing times.

As well as constantly developing our own products and services to protect farmers, we see it as part of our role to keep you informed about how the industry is evolving – in technology and beyond – and what that means for your business. 

Today, the pace of change is staggering. There's a technological revolution happening in farming, with a growing number of systems available to enable farmers to increase productivity, protect the environment as well as make their job safer. So, whether you’re looking to build a state of the art vertical farm, or you’re taking delivery of a robotic tractor, embracing the right technology is important to improve productivity as well as reduce costs.

So, the challenge now is to decide on which technology to adopt and when. This involves taking a holistic view of the farm, ensuring you choose technology with the potential to improve resilience and make your business more profitable for the future.

Which is why we have worked with a number of experts to produce an NFU Mutual Agri-Tech report. The report aims to help farmers understand the opportunities and risks ahead so they can make the right decisions for their farming business.
