Rothamsted Research is the longest running agricultural research station in the world, providing cutting-edge science and innovation for around 170 years.
Their scientific strategy uses a dynamic and integrated approach to crop science, allowing them to study plants from within (e.g. at a molecular level) as well as from their interactions with the environment.
Their mission is to deliver the knowledge and new practices to increase crop productivity and quality and to develop environmentally sustainable solutions for food and energy production.
Rothamsted integrates biotechnology with other areas of science such as agronomy and agro-ecology so both existing and new knowledge can be implemented through agricultural practice.
Their strength lies in the integrated, multidisciplinary approach to research in plant and soil science.
