Agricultural technologies (agri-tech) strategy

Documents related to the government's plans to support the growth of the agri-tech sector.

In partnership with industry, government has developed a long-term agri-tech strategy. It makes sure the knowledge and insight from the UK’s world-leading science base are translated into benefits for society and the economy at home and abroad. The strategy was launched in July 2013, with £160 million of funding.

To find out more about the agri-tech strategy see the publications section or contact the team at agritechstrategy@bis.gsi.gov.uk.
