Centre for Agricultural Innovation

The demands on the agricultural industry are constantly changing and those involved need to keep pace with technological developments in a changing commercial and political environment.

The Centre for Agricultural Innovation at Bishop Burton College, in partnership with NFU Mutual, aims to offer solutions to some of the challenges facing agriculture through a combination of land based research, practical experience and its engagement with industry partners.

The success of agriculture lies in research and development, by working with our students and partners we can play a key role in helping to shape farming in the future and pass this knowledge on to the wider farming community.
