Innovation is going on in the field as well as the laboratory. To make sure that our research can build on this we proactively work with farmers, businesses and innovators to drive our research and ensure that it delivers solutions that are of greatest relevance and benefit to the sector.
If you wish to visit one of our sites, there are various options:
Harpenden: Visitors may use the public and permissive paths through the site at any time. Downloadable self-guided walking trails covering our science and heritage can be accessed here. To request a more formal group visit, please complete the visit form.
North Wyke: Public access is restricted, but the site hosts research open days twice a year. Check our events page for details of forthcoming events. Formal group visits on other dates may be possible, subject to staff availability. If you wish to request a visit, please complete the visit form.
Together, the wealth of knowledge and expertise in UK agriculture, combined with the globally leading research developed by scientists at Rothamsted, can drive future food security in the face of global population growth and a less predictable climate.
Though a diverse programme of events, discussion groups, publications and farm walks, we talk to farmers and those in the agricultural sector to learn about the challenges facing them, identify areas of shared interest, and maximise opportunities for collaboration and knowledge sharing.
