4 days to go...
A multi-million pound hub for the development, testing and sharing of technologies to boost productivity in farming and the food supply chain has opened at Harper Adams University following Innovate UK investment.
Agri-EPI Centre has developed the £4.4 million research & development facility in close partnership the University.
A priority for the new hub is to encourage farmer uptake of innovative technologies to increase the overall benefits to UK farming. Experts will explore how robotics, lasers, sensors and satellite technology may benefit farmers, such as robots which can pick soft fruit or lasers which can target individual weeds in a field without pesticides or damage to the crop. These are technologies being researched by Harper Adams in conjunction with industry partners, which can be tested further through the Agri-EPI Centre network.
