Many UK farms have faced great uncertainty over the last few years, whether due to political changes or shifts in a turbulent marketplace. However, there are clear trends: data will play a larger role in farming, as what is often termed the “data revolution” progresses both in the UK and abroad.

Here are our thoughts on three predictions for data trends which will shape farming in 2020 and beyond:
- Integrating data with farming becomes second nature
- Greater insight will deliver greater efficiency on farms
- Precision farming continues to rise
