The agricultural sector is the single largest employer in the world, providing livelihoods for 40 per cent of today’s global population. The United Nations has set a target to double the agricultural productivity and incomes of small-scale food producers, and ensure food production systems are sustainable by implementing resilient agricultural practices by 2030.
The Agri-Tech Cornwall project is a step towards achieving these targets. The University of Plymouth are proud to be a partner on this £10m part-funded ERDF initiative to help the United Kingdom become a world leader in agricultural technology and sustainability.
Researchers from the University of Plymouth will share their expertise with the sector and collaborate with small and medium-sized Cornish companies to research the future sustainability of the sector.
