agri-tech cornwall and isles of scilly Duchy College

In recognition of the success of its approach to technology transfer and business innovation, Duchy College Rural Business School (RBS) was presented with a Queen’s Anniversary Prize in 2014. As the first ever land-based college in England to receive such a prize, the award recognises the work carried out by the RBS to enhance the technical capabilities and growth of south west rural businesses.

We have a strong agricultural heritage, however the sector is facing significant challenges; requiring new and improved ways to empower farms and their immediate supply chains – to enhance, protect and sustain our natural assets and those individuals and families that farm them.
