Bishop Burton College is combining traditional practical studies with modern teaching methods to train the next generation of farmers.
Rural and allied businesses in the Yorkshire region and beyond benefit from cutting-edge research and a pool of industry expertise which prepares them for the issues posed by climate change, population growth and increasing government legislation thanks to the Bishop Burton Centre for Agricultural Innovation.
The centre has been established to draw together all strands of land-based research currently carried out by staff and students at the College.
By establishing a centre such as this, the results of valuable applied research can be used, built upon and promoted effectively to the betterment of agricultural and allied industries.
This, in turn, creates knowledge transfer between the College, other academic organisations and industry partners, which is then be shared with food producers and other areas of industry.
Farmers and growers from across the North of England are being urged to attend the 8th annual Agrii Conference, which will be held at Bishop Burton College on Thursday 16th February 2017.
Bishop Burton’s chosen charity of the year, the Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution (R.A.B.I.), is celebrating a phenomenal year of fundraising, thanks in part to staff and students at the College.
