Plant Production & Protection (P3)

Translating our basic plant and soil sciences research into practical solutions to feed the World’s expanding population.

More people die each year from hunger and malnutrition than from AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria combined and the question of how we will feed our rapidly expanding global population is urgent and non-trivial. The UK is committed to leading a new Agricultural Revolution that will feed the world whilst protecting our landscapes and preserving environmental assets.

In response, the University of Sheffield is pioneering a translational approach that builds on our internationally recognised research in plant sciences, to address agricultural challenges experienced by real world producers and land carers.

Plant Production and Protection (P3) is one of the first university-based translational agri-tech programmes in existence and our aim is to make it the first choice for any company that needs fundamental research to answer any plant focused challenge.
