Course delegates will learn to develop a precision vision for their business.
Applications are due to close this month for the new Harper Adams and Farmers’ Livery course, Adopting Precision Technology in Agriculture.
The course is aimed primarily at farmers, farm managers and those associated with delivering and utilising advanced agricultural technology in the field and aims to fill the gap between research, science and technology and the farmers who might use new technologies. Delegates will learn to to use information from their own farms/businesses and will have the opportunity to develop a “Precision Vision” for their own business.
Spread over 2019/2020, the course from Harper Adams University and the Worshipful Company of Farmers, sponsored by NFU Mutual, comprises three independent weeks of study with two weeks in the UK and one week in the Netherlands.
The University is now seeking participants who have or who are considering implementing new technologies within their business but somehow, as yet, are not truly convinced about the technical, financial or operational benefits that implementation can bring to their own units.
This course will provide an opportunity to see it in practice, talk to the innovators, the industry leaders, the disruptors, and assess for themselves the opportunities and benefits that precision farming can bring.
The application process includes completion of an application form, and an interview to be held at Harper Adams University on September 12, 2019. Further information can be found at harper.ac.uk/apta or by contacting Course Director Simon Thelwell at firstname.lastname@example.org.
