The National Centre for Precision Farming (NCPF) aims to provide information and a range of support initiatives that will enable visitors to the site to gain an on-going understanding of precision farming, insight into precision farming developments and support services designed to assist farmers and associated stakeholders in applying precision farming methods.
The NCPF is based at the Agricultural Engineering Innovation Centre at Harper Adams University. This £2.93m engineering building supplements existing resources and provides a physical base around which university/industry collaboration can be stimulated.
The National Centre will be of significant benefit in helping policy-makers and the wider public recognise the vital contribution made by the agricultural engineering sector to future food production.
