ADAS is home to the largest horticulture applied research group in the UK. We are the only UK based group of consultants who continue to provide impartial advice to growers in the soft fruit, vegetable, protected edible and ornamental sectors. We are also the only laboratory currently offering a growing media analysis and design service. We cover five themes to deliver sustainable intensification of horticulture production systems: chemicals, nutrients, substrates and growing media, technology, breeding and propagation. Our experienced consultants work with all points of the supply chain to form an essential link between growers, wider industry, the research community and Government policy.
