Strategic BBSRC & NERC programme with CEH & Rothamsted  - Achieving Sustainable Agricultural Systems,

ASSIST is a six-year £12 million research programme running from 2016 to 2022 that, with support from the farming industry, will meet the challenge of feeding growing populations without causing unacceptable environmental damage.

The UK Centre for Ecology & Hydrology in partnership with Rothamsted Research and British Geological Survey will develop innovative farming systems in collaboration with industry and stakeholders to:

  • Increase efficiency of food production
  • Improve resilience to extreme events 
  • Reduce the environmental foot print of agriculture
