Our innovative research draws on the fields of science, engineering, social sciences, and arts and humanities. Working in partnership with policy makers, farmers, the agri-food industry, non-governmental organisations and the public, we’re finding new solutions to sustain and improve the world’s future food supplies.
Plant production and protection
Our work includes the impact of climate change on agriculture, the dynamics of weeds, pests and diseases, the molecular biology of plants, and soil biology.
Translational and transformative
Our teams translate research into real-world applications and work to facilitate knowledge exchange with agri-businesses and policy-makers.
Bringing together a multidisciplinary team of experts to support Colombia in developing and protecting its biodiversity, ecosystem and culture.
In light of growing concerns about pesticides, we are developing a new crop protection strategy based on chemical priming of the plant immune system.
The future of our food
One in nine people will go to bed hungry tonight. One in three people experience some form of malnutrition. We have one planet to feed everyone. The challenge of food security cannot be taken lightly.
