The Crop Science Initiative funded 18 projects across the UK, with the aim of applying the principles of sustainable development to future crop production.

The projects have harnessed the potential of genetics to sustain crop yields, combat pests and diseases and improve the range of products – all the while reducing negative environmental impacts.

The projects have focused on a range of crops from strawberry and broccoli to wheat and barley.
