Development of our ATP is funded by BBSRC, who have also provided generous bursaries for eligible delegates. Our aim is to address the high–level skills needs of pasture-based agriculture, by providing training focused on using the latest research findings, to increase the efficiency and reduce the environmental impact of extensive beef, sheep and dairy farming.
IBERS carries out internationally important research in: plant, animal and microbial sciences, agriculture, cell biology and physiology, genomics, ecology, plant breeding and animal reproduction. IBERS’ integrated expertise enable holistic and systems approaches.
Bangor University is a leading UK centre for research in land use, environmental sciences and related areas of biology. It is at the forefront of UK research on sustainable production, soils and agroforestry; and works closely with the UK food industry in providing carbon footprinting and lifecycle assessment.
NIAB-TAG’s research programmes in Genetics and Breeding and Crops and Agronomy span basic, applied and translational research in a wide variety of crops. It is uniquely placed to take new genetic developments through appropriate agronomy to the farmers’ field with a high degree of integration between science and practice.
