Four students from universities across the UK have spent the summer at Harper Adams learning about fresh produce research.
They have been taking part in 10-week paid placements at the Fresh Produce Research Centre on campus, working alongside lecturers and research staff.
The placements are aimed at those who are studying plant science, environmental science, agriculture or horticulture, at an undergraduate level at any institution in the UK.
This year’s cohort is Rachel Carpenter from Bangor University; John Vaughan-Hirsch from Royal Holloway, University of London; Lara Boucher from Exeter University and Nick Court from Warwick University.
They have been supervised by Dr Jim Monaghan, Principal Lecturer at Harper Adams.
