Research & Development

Supporting the future of farming through our commitment to research & development.

We are committed to finding solutions to agronomic problems.

We believe that our breadth and depth of research is what sets us apart – whether we’re trialling new seed varieties, researching integrated pest management, or developing new bio-stimulants.

Under our Green Horizons programme, we’re putting more focus on sustainable technologies and approaches, across arable, fruit, vegetable and potatoes – something that our new iFarms and Digital Technology Farms will help us to research in a real farm setting.


Just some of the topics we’re researching

Every year we have a new programme of research based on what you, our customers, tell us you most need. Here are some examples of what we’re currently working on:

  • Field trials comparing untreated, standard fungicide programmes, reduced rate fungicides, and reduced rate fungicides bolstered with biosolutions

  • Research on regenerative farming techniques with a focus on ensuring profitability 

  • 40,000 trials of seed varieties, plus trials of crops novel to the UK market, while also developing our Variety Sustainability Ratings

  • Seed treatment trials looking at ‘traditional’ and new, including micronutritional, biological (including endophytes) and biostimulant options

  • Trialling our Agrii-Start range of fertilisers, designed for enhancing nutrient use efficiency (NUE) and reducing your carbon footprint

  • Crop protection products trials focused on understanding new products or those being registered within 2-3 years

  • Wide ranging work on biosolutions, exploring benefits to crop health and pest and disease tolerance and control 

Take a look around Throws Farm

Throws Farm Technology Centre is a LEAF Innovation Centre

The in-depth research carried out at our iFarms and Technology Centres, alongside our Green Horizons initiative, has led to the accreditation of Throws Farm as a LEAF (Linking Environment and Farming) Innovation Centre. The official launch took place on Wednesday 13th October 2021.
