    MONTPELIER — The Randolph-based Vermont Technical College is getting a $3.4 million federal grant for training programs for state industries that support agriculture, food production, waste disposal and energy production.

    The grant will support the Applied Agriculture and Food Systems Institute at Vermont Tech.

    The grant is through the Department of Labor.

    Vermont Tech President Phil Conroy says the grant will allow the school to improve upon its degree and college-level certificates and help meet trade employment needs throughout the state.

    The Institute for Applied Agriculture and Food Systems focuses on food processing and production and dairy farm management, with an emphasis on soil conservation and an innovative approach to energy production.
