Major breakthroughs in our understanding of pest predators and plant immune responses are offering the potential for non-chemical pest control
Experts at the Norwich Research Park discuss sustainable farming practices and their interactions with soil microbiology and crop pests
Collaborative research to combat pathogens was the theme of the first event of Agri-Tech Week 2019, which was held at the Norwich Research Park (NRP). Disease resistance, understanding pathogen life-cycles and alternatives to antibiotics were some of the themes.
This Agri-Tech Week event showcases agri-tech innovation from across the Norwich Research Park (NRP) around the theme of climate resilience in agriculture.
The NRP’s six science partners form an international centre of excellence in life and environmental sciences research, with particular strengths in plant and microbial sciences, genetics and genomics, climate and geo-sciences and food, health and human nutrition.
The event includes contributions from the John Innes Centre, UEA, Earlham Institute, and NRP tenants.
A high level of genetic diversity has been found in the A. E. Watkins bread wheat landrace collection, which is held at the John Innes Centre
