Event description
A two-day workshop to explore the latest technology surrounding hydroponics, vertical farming, LED lighting and plant nutrition!

About this Event

There is an increased focus on producing food sustainably and ever-emerging components of this are hydroponics and vertical farming.

The GrowAgri Worcestershire project at Pershore College is hosting a two-day workshop to raise awareness of current technology through academic research and informative talks by industry experts.

As well as exploring hydroponics and vertical farming, the event will also delve into innovative filtration, aquaponics, LED lighting technology, plant nutrition and fully 'enclosed' systems to maximise efficiencies.

GrowAgri offers an exciting opportunity for Worcester-based SME technology companies to gain an insight into this sector to allow them to have a more meaningful engagement through the development of products and services.

Who should attend? It will be of particular benefit to independent consultants and project managers, agricultural engineers, environmental consultants as well as those already working on vertical farming systems. It will also present networking opportunities with established companies and the opportunity to access grant funding.

To support SMEs who are looking to diversify into the agri-tech sector GrowAgri Worcestershire has a range of grants from £1,000 upwards, to support the purchase of capital equipment. For full terms & conditions please email growagri@wcg.ac.uk or call 0330 135 7179.

GrowAgri Worcestershire is jointly funded by WCG and the European Regional Development Fund.
