EXPLORE THE DATA ECOSYSTEM

The UK Government’s Strategy for Agricultural Technologies, published in July 2013, is accelerating growth in the Agri-Tech sector, with funding for four new Centres for Agricultural Innovation that advances the development, adoption and exploitation of new technologies in the agri-food sector.

Agrimetrics, as the first of the four ‘Agri-Tech’ Centres, is a big data centre of excellence for the whole agri-food value chain, from farm through to consumer. It is a partnership between four Founder Partners: Rothamsted Research, The University of Reading, National Institute of Agricultural Botany (NIAB) and SRUC, Scotland’s Rural College. It has expertise and capabilities in data science, smart analytics, bioinformatics, translational research and knowledge exchange in crops, livestock and food, and sustainability.
