Broccoli harvesting with Earth Rover - Agri-EPI Centre

Broccoli harvesting with Earth Rover

This project will develop and test a selective prototype automated broccoli harvesting machine on a commercial broccoli farm to reduce the post-Brexit issue of harvest labour shortage, increase crop yields by harvesting more of the broccoli heads, and recover the 80% of the broccoli plant that is currently left on the field unharvested and that has the potential to be valorised into nutritious plant-based food products — improving the overall productivity, sustainability and resilience of broccoli farming in the UK towards net zero.

Using agri-tech solutions to improve the health and wellbeing of dairy heifers, the Healthy Heifer project provides dairy farmers with the insights and information into animal health they need to make better-informed decisions, boost productivity and efficiency on-farm.
