Agri-EPI Centre

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 optimise performance of highly complex agricultural production and processing systems. The Centre 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 works with 28 ‘satellite’ farms across the UK where new technologies and techniques are researched, developed, trialled and shared in commercial farm settings.

Agri-EPI 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 centres to harness leading UK research and expertise as a well as build new infrastructure and innovation.
