Land, Farm and Agri-business Management Department As per advert Post Type: Full Time Closing Date: 23.59 hours GMT on Friday 28 February 2020 Interview Date: To be confirmed Reference: RD-PHD42JLDEB-R PhD Studentship (36 months with potential for an additional year with teaching experience) Background Population growth and economic development are driving the demand for more and better quality food. Simultaneously, there is pressure to limit the environmental footprint of agriculture, manage existing land more intensely, use fewer inputs and apply those inputs only when and where they are most needed. Managing farms more intensely usually requires more workers, but in the UK and many other parts of the world agricultural labour is increasingly difficult to hire. Agricultural automation, robotics and co-robotics are often suggested as part of the sustainable intensification solution. Automating routine agricultural operations would reduce the labour constraint. Robots might make it economically feasible to manage individual plants and animals, instead of managing fields and herds. The technical ability to automate routine farm work and to enable autonomous agricultural robots is rapidly developing. This study will assess the economic implications of robotics for field crops and ...more
