Edd Mowbray wins 2019 Omnia Precision Farming Award

Published on 14th October 2019

Edd Mowbray of Farmers Weekly has won the 2019 Omnia Precision Agronomy Award 2019, sponsored by Hutchinsons.

Edd won the award for an in-depth feature on Air Scout thermal imaging, which was published online and in Farmers Weekly magazine in December 2018.

Judges described the article as “a nicely written piece on a novel technology, with good use of quotes and a bit of personality, which shows how the technology could be applied in the UK".

Runner-up was Farmers Guide machinery editor David Williams for his article about a forward-looking Kent farmer and how he uses the RTK precision guidance system on his farm.
