The research programme, led by Rothamsted focuses on new wheat traits and characteristics which could improve crop resilience in the future.

 

Kim Hammond-Kosack, a cereals specialist at Rothamsted Research says: “We explore such factors as improved responses to abiotic and biotic stress, efficiencies in the use of nutrients and canopy architecture.

 

The new contract, due to be signed in March, will see Defra invest £1.7 million in the research programme, allowing it to continue into its fourth phase.

 

For the first time, the network’s new contract includes an alliance with the AHDB, with the aim of strengthening direct links to farmers.
