In this Alumni in the Spotlight we share a couple of James Allen’s LinkedIn posts of some pre-GFP travel. (#NuffieldNZ). Images below show James’ visits, including the University of Illinois.
We follow this up with a summary of the Global Focus Programme (GFP) travel so far completed, or to be completed soon by Scholars from the last few cohorts.
James Allen, LinkedIn Post 1 – 2 weeks ago.
First part of the Nuffield journey underway. Thanks to all the wonderful people at Purdue, Illinois and Missouri Universities for their willingness to share ideas, as we all consider how technology is changing the way we farm, and the way we use information. Thanks to the Nuffield sponsors for making it possible!
James Allen, LinkedIn Post 2 – 6 days ago.
Finishing up the US leg of my Nuffield journey. Thank you to the wonderful people at Purdue University, University of Illinois, Missouri University, Kansas State University, Bayer, Climate Fieldview, and Grasslands (and many more!) for your hospitality and willingness to share ideas.
My Nuffield study is examining how the role of the agricultural advisor/extension agent will evolve as technology is changing the way we farm and the way we use information.
I have gained good insights about how AI is being used to improve site specific recommendations for farmers that can both improve financial performance and reduce environmental impacts at the same time. I believe AI has the potential to help us manage the ever increasing amount of data farmers are collecting, to make better decisions.
Now heading to the UK to talk to the best and brightest!
