Following the announcement that Scotland’s Rural College (SRUC) is investing in a vertical farm, a series of online tech training films is now available to explain the exciting range of innovative technology being used in the sector.

Vertical farming, machine learning, drones and blockchain technology are just some of the topics explored in SRUCBytes, eight episodes of which can now be viewed on the SRUC website.

Dr Hannah Rudman, Senior Challenge Research Fellow at SRUC, who has created the training sessions supported by colleagues at SAC Consulting, said: “We all love to talk about digital technologies as easier, better, faster ways to do things.

“SRUCBytes episodes provide an explanation of the basics of the tech and give us insight into how new tech is actually being deployed in the natural economy sector and the real benefits it achieves.

“Tech training around new technologies is important for everyone, as digital transformation introduces it more into our everyday work and lives.”

The technology explanations will give people insight into what they actually do and how they do it, with episodes showcasing how it is being deployed in the natural economy sector and the real benefits it achieves.

SRUCBytes was funded by a Universities Innovation Fund grant to SRUC, provided by the Scottish Funding Council.
