Agri-EPI Centre is accelerating the adoption of precision agriculture and engineering technologies to boost productivity across the whole agri-food chain. It does this by exploring how to optimize performance of the highly complex agricultural production and processing systems. This includes considering key drivers of profitability and sustainability, such as livestock and plant growth rates, nutrient efficiency, product quality, and health and welfare. The Center provides world-class R&D facilities, connects academia and industry and progresses next generation technologies such as sensing, imaging and robotics to create a new understanding of production efficiency.
Agri-EPI Centre is one of the four Agri-Tech Centres of Agricultural Innovation, a unique collaboration between UK Government, academia and industry to drive greater efficiency, resilience and wealth across the agri-food sector. A £90 million investment from the UK’s strategic innovation agency, Innovate UK, is enabling the four centers to harness leading UK. research and expertise as a well as build new infrastructure and innovation.
