The National Institute of Agricultural Botany was founded by a Deed of Trust in 1919. NIAB has enjoyed Royal support from its foundation and is very proud that Her Majesty The Queen is patron. The Queen’s patronage recognises the work NIAB does for national and international agriculture and commands respect world-wide.
