Devon Agri-Tech Alliance supports local agriculture
The Devon Agri-Tech Alliance (DATA) aims to support Devon’s agricultural sector by making innovation easier and more accessible. It will facilitate a community of research organisations, tech developers, farmers and other agricultural businesses so that those working on the ground can help shape future research and collaborate with tech developers to ensure that research and tech solutions are practical and relevant.
Members will share knowledge and collaborate, which can help to support the testing and adoption of low-carbon agricultural practices.
DATA is the legacy of the Devon Agri-Tech Accelerator project. The project provided support for Agri-Tech businesses and used Community Renewal Funding to reduce Devon’s carbon footprint, enhance farm productivity, keep a localised economy, and grow the agriculture and Agri-Tech business sector in Devon.
