    Going global – Africa, Argentina and Asia

    Could crop varieties that cope in extreme environments thrive in the UK? Would “no-till’ practices from the altiplano work below sea level on the fens? Would on-farm processing from other geographies work here? At a time of great economic, political and environmental change, looking outwards can provide sources of inspiration and innovation.

    Science is global and so is agriculture therefore despite our nominally regional focus, we also help our members look beyond the boundaries of the east of England and indeed the UK itself. This openness is creating opportunities for joint ventures overseas.
