Humans have been tending to the land for millennia, and during this time methods have changed rather little. But today, agricultural technology - known as 'agritech' - is a fast-growing industry aiming to disrupt ancient farming practices with cutting edge technology.
A number of startups in the UK have emerged at the forefront of this new frontier. According to a statistics from the UK Government, the agritech industry currently accounts for £14.3 billion in turnover and more than half a million jobs in Britain right now.
These are some of the UK’s agritech startups aiming to transform the industry as we know it.
