We have extensive experience in leading industry-focused research across the UK horticulture sector. Our clients include levy groups, agri-chemical companies and other agricultural groups.
As trusted, independent experts, any evidence we produce will have a high level of resonance and uptake in the sector.
We have led several projects to bring cutting-edge research into commercial practice, including through InnovateUK.
Our facilities at our research station at Boxworth, Cambridge, enable us to carry out the following trials on many crop types:
With our dedicated hydroponics facility, we can test multiple nutrition management or water regimens simultaneously. Our polytunnel and glasshouse facilities provide excellent facilities of ex-situ commercial or near commercial trials.
We analyse trial results against a diverse range of scientific and commercial criteria. Results are backed by robust statistical and modelling support to provide cost-effective testing for near market products and processing (including to ORETO standards where required).
Support is provided at every stage of trial development and analysis. This includes the communication of results so that our clients achieve the greatest benefit.
Our experts provide full scientific support in the development of bespoke trials that address your requirements. Through our unique role in UK horticulture as trainers and advisors, we can ensure that industry-relevant information is produced.
