1028: Agricultural research partnership needed

This is paper is taken from a press release about ‘Practice with Science and Agriculture: The need to Re-invigorate this Partnership’. The report was published by the Royal Agricultural Society of England and written by the chairman of RASE’s Practice with Science Committee, Professor David Leaver.

Year of Publication2010

The UK needs a competitive agricultural industry to meet the future challenges of food production and land use. This competitiveness will only occur if innovations and new technologies are produced and quickly adopted by its producers. The motto of the RASE is “Practice with Science” which recognises that, to be successful, the practice of agriculture must work in partnership with science. The RASE believes that this partnership in agriculture is under serious threat, and that a new approach is required involving both public and private sectors working together.
