With support from the likes of the NFU, AHDB, the National Sheep Association and Royal Association of British Dairy Farmers, the centre ‘will provide farmers, students and organisations with access to the latest commercial technology’.

 

Vice-chancellor and chief executive of Hartpury University and principal of Hartpury College Russell Marchant said the on-site commercial working farm and new purpose-built facilities would allow the team to design, develop, evaluate and promote their new products and systems.

 

He said it was an ‘exciting time’ for the region.

 

Ambition

“These plans highlight the scale of our commitment and our ambition to be leaders in shaping the future of digital farming and beyond,” Mr Marchant said.

 

“Our aim is that, by 2030, the digital innovation farm will have expanded and grown into a state-of-the-art complex at Hartpury attracting leading agri-tech companies and contributing to increased productivity in Gloucestershire and the UK.”
