New UK Center to Address Production and Sustainability Challenges

February 18, 2011

The Institute of Biological, Environmental and Rural Sciences at Aberystwyth University and the National Institute of Agricultural Botany in Cambridge have jointly established a Center of Excellence for UK Farming or CEUFK. The center aims to provide the best information and advice to policy makers and stakeholders on the developments in science, innovation, and practical know-hows, and link with partners in applied research and industry.

Since June 2010, initial work have been carried out in the Center and pilot research programmes to benchmark the efficiency of UK lamb and wheat production have been started. Results of the projects which focus on key sustainability indicators, greenhouse gas emissions, and ecological diversity will be announced later in the year.
