Agri-EPI Crop Technology Hub opening

September 13 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Agri-EPI invites you to attend the opening of their Crop Technology Southern Hub based at the Agri-Informatics Building at Cranfield University.

Delivering academic rigour, data analytics and agri-tech expertise, our Crop Technology Southern Innovation Hub is home to world-class collaborative research within state-of-the-art facilities, including the Glasshouse Phenotyping Platform and Postharvest Storage Facilities.

This showcase event will provide an opportunity to view technical assets and facilities that could support your innovations linked to soil, crop health and sensor development for sustainable solutions for the arable and horticulture sectors. Our technical data, robotics and automation team will be on-hand to discuss how Agri-EPI can support you.

The facility is also home of the National Reference Centre for Soils and associated land information system, LandIS. In 2017, Cranfield University was awarded the Queen’s Anniversary Prize for its research and education in large-scale soil and environmental data for the sustainable use of natural resources in the UK and worldwide.

There will be complementary networking lunch and arrival drinks.
