DescriptionMartin Broadley and Louise Ander attended a meeting of the Professional Agriculture Analysis Group (PAAG) at the Agriculture Industries Confederation (AIC) office in Peterborough. We provided a short presentation to ~15 attendees from the agronomy/fertiliser business, reflecting both SME and major companies. Discussion then developed as to possible wider data sharing with industry than was envisaged at the proposal stage of this project: at the time of writing this has advanced considerably to being close to data sharing under a new licence arrangement. Further, the network this has created with AIC has led to further interactions between AIC and BGS in particular, including in providing guidance for agricultural sector support, an important component of a further (successful) NERC grant application. AIC have since used the new link with BGS to access published data resources, which they were not previously using.
