Processor & Growers Research Organisation
The PGRO is a non statutory levy body supported by our grower members, the UK trade and also by a substantial amount of outside funding for our research work. This is carried out both on our own and in partnership with UK, European and worldwide research and commercial organisations.
We are proud of our stability and consistency over the years. As a forward-looking organization, the PGRO team will continue to develop our services to the benefit of our levy payers as well as our research-based and commercial partners.
“Our vision is to be the independent partner for applied crop research. To be acknowledged as the primary reference point for all aspects of temperate pulse and vegetable-legume crop production, marketing and economics.”
- To pursue the provision of current advice for growers, the realisation of improved crop yield, quality and economics.
- To facilitate open, accessible, reliable and relevant knowledge exchange.
- To develop progressive and innovative approaches towards crop research and development.
- To create and maintain extensive and close links with growers, processors, trade and fundamental researcher communities.
