Agriculture and Crops
Dr Martin Hare
Principal Lecturer, Associate Head of Department and Research Postgraduate Programmes Manager
Preserving agricultural land now and for the future requires people who can deal with the challenges that face society from population increases to climate change and everything in between. Farmers, scientists, inventors and academics each have a part to play and there is a place for all of them in modern agriculture.
Scores of Harper Adams graduates are playing important roles in a variety of sectors throughout the world. They may be in primary food production, researching alternative crops or helping to manage the food supply. Some have gone on to overseeing environmental projects or are contributing to the development of new technologies such as biofuel research and production.
Whatever path you choose to follow in this sector, Harper Adams will equip you with the knowledge and qualifications that you will need to make your career a resounding success.
