Over the six-month period, the expo will enable more than 140 participating countries to exchange ideas on how to guarantee healthy, safe and sufficient food for everyone for the future, while respecting the planet and its equilibrium.

The Met Office is taking part in the GREAT week Agri-tech in the UK Pavilion. The Pavilion in a showcase of British innovation, creativity and global leadership in Agricultural Technology (Agri-tech). The UK's participation theme is Grown in Britain & Northern Ireland, led by UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) with support from seven HM Government departments.

With only 35 crop cycles before 2050 and a population of 9 billion, the Agri-tech sector needs to press forward with novel approaches, game changing technology, and innovative and sustainable solutions to feed the planet. Working closely with partners from across the world, we are uniquely positioned to bring science, industry and our world leading weather and climate services together to develop food supply and security advice across the short, medium and long-term.
