Agri-tech Cornwall is a £11.8 million initiative to drive research, development and innovation in the agricultural sector, in order to deliver a vibrant and sustainable industry. It aims to develop agricultural technologies and innovations that make agriculture more efficient and productive, more resilient and secure, more profitable, and better able to enhance and protect the natural environment and those that farm it. This is a unique opportunity for small to medium-sized Cornish businesses to develop and apply new agricultural technologies assisted by project partners, research grants and graduate placements.
