How many women does it take to make a beehive?

Apparently nine. Last week I embarked on a challenge in Tanzania with eight other business women to do just that, and built 90 beehives within a remote area in Nou Forest.

Judith Batchelar: Innovation In Agriculture

When the Chancellor released the budget most eyes were probably drawn to the duty freeze on fuel, or even the newly shaped £1 coin. However, my attention turned to the news that £12 million is being put into a Centre for Agricultural Informatics and Sustainability Metrics. What a fantastic result for driving innovation and enabling the use of data science to build a more productive and sustainable food industry.
