Today at the Anglian Water seminar ‘Growing innovation from water, food and agriculture’ it was announced that Agri-Tech East is to take the discussion further by establishing a Special Interest Group called ‘Water for Agriculture’.

Each of the SIG’s will have two co-chairs taken from industry and academia.

We are delighted that Andy Brown, Head of Sustainability at Anglian Water, and Prof Kevin Hiscock, Professor of Environmental Sciences at UEA (University of East Anglia), have agreed to take these positions for the Water for Agriculture SIG.

Belinda Clarke says: “Today’s event, which is the last in a series of workshops hosted by Anglian Water, has demonstrated that there is a lively interest in this area and Agri-Tech East is delighted to help build partnerships through our first SIG”.

More information about the SIG will be available shortly but if you would like to express your interest in the SIG do let us know through the new Agri-Forum.
