In celebration of the new partnership between the AHDB and Agri-Tech East, we are jointly hosting an event to showcase some of the newest technologies and innovations in post-harvest management and storage.

From rapid refrigeration to seed cleaning, and from electronic noses to automated environmental control systems, good post-harvest management systems are vital to prevent deterioration and retain the value of the harvested crop. This event will explore new innovations being used to help maintain the quality and integrity of the crop post-harvest, for short and long-term storage.

There is also the option for a tour of the facilities to see first-hand the research programmes underway at Sutton Bridge, and the chance to meet Laura Bouvet, our latest new recruit who is working jointly with Agri-Tech East and the AHDB.
