Students benefit from Vicon Technology Day

Students benefit from Vicon Technology Day

Hartpury Agriculture students recently got the chance to get 'hands on' with equipment from a major supplier to the land-based sector.

Representatives from VICON, which are part of the Kverneland Group, spent a day with final year Hartpury Agricultural students.

Focusing on Fertiliser Spreading and Chemical Spraying equipment, students were shown current technology used to improve performance and increase efficiency. Hartpury Hosted a Technology day last year as part of a national tour by VICON and the student day was as a result of these links.

Both parties are keen to strengthen links further in relation to facilities offered by the College and current industry standards from VICON.
