APP-LAUDED with Will Dunn, Founder of Ag-drive

Young agri-tech entrepreneur, Will Dunn, talks about his new innovative app, Ag-drive, which was born out of practical farming experience – and resulted in him winning the top innovation award at the recent LAMMA show. 

Ag-drive is a cloud-based app for agricultural contractors and farmers to help manage the business, from job planning through to completion, with the ability to send invoices linked to accounts packages such as Quick Books, Sage and Xero,

Ag-drive provides a truly paperless system making every farm contracting business accountable and traceable. The system is also being used by businesses and contractors outside the agricultural sector.

Will describes the development process, the testing, the constant tweaking and preparing the app for launch. He has recently returned from Australia after taking part in a research trip organised by Innovate UK.
