Formerly part of the Institute of Grassland and Environmental Research, North Wyke is integrated with Rothamsted Research, and so brings together BBSRC research on grassland and arable systems.
Rothamsted Research, North Wyke provides unique research capabilities for the UK. These help to address some of agriculture's most pressing challenges, for example mitigating and adapting to climate change, protecting natural resources and sustaining the rural economy in grassland dominated regions such as South West England.
We have refocused our research to harness the power of new systems biology approaches. These combine predictive computer modelling, which can make sense of huge amounts of data, with experimentation in the field and in the lab. The result is improved understanding of the complexity of grassland ecosystems and what it means for practical land management food production and environmental goals.
We are collaborating with scientists from complementary research centres to ensure that the UK has critical capability in research into sustainable management of agricultural landscapes.
