Our global population is increasing by approximately 83 million people each year*. This means increased demand for food, which puts immense pressure on our earth’s resources. You, as future agriculturalists, are critical to tackling this challenge.
At Hartpury, we’ll support you to do just that. Through our new £2million Agri-Tech Centre you’ll gain experience of the latest smart farming technologies and have opportunities to collaborate on real-world projects to improve productivity and profitability across the county.
We’ll help you to gain applied knowledge and make informed business decisions. You'll do your bit to feed Gloucestershire, the UK and, ultimately, the world – whilst preparing yourself for an exciting agricultural career where you’ll get to make a real difference. It’s this real experience that will give you a head start.
The centre has been developed in partnership with GFirst LEP. Complementing existing agricultural projects in Gloucestershire, the centre includes unique demonstration, bio-security and livestock areas to showcase the potential of smart farming.
