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 eight-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 included William Johnson from Bangor University, Kathryn Hales from the University of Exeter, Johnathan Harvey from Lancaster University and Iain Place from the University of Manchester.
They have been supervised by Dr Jim Monaghan, Principal Lecturer at Harper Adams.
