The ‘Green Book’, and its online equivalent at ukpesticideguide.co.uk, is THE essential reference for a wide range of audiences involved in pesticide use and recommendation. It covers all pesticide products and adjuvants approved for use in agriculture, amenity, forestry and horticulture, including new active ingredient profiles and many new formulations for a wide selection of different crops.
Modern wheat varieties carry a wide range of different genes associated with important traits, such as increased yield and disease resistance. It is impossible to capture all of these genes with a single genome sequence so additional genome sequences are required. Sequencing multiple wheat genomes allow for a more complete complement of wheat genes to be identified, particularly genes that are present in only a subset of individuals or are unique to one variety.
UK horticultural growers face increasing pressure from crop pests, weeds and diseases, due to a combination of new non-indigenous threats, emerging pesticide resistance issues and increasing regulatory pressure on the availability and type of plant protection products.
Dr Zhou will collaborate with research groups and companies in the UK, Europe and China to spearhead big data- based solutions in the areas of crop imaging, crop phenomics and AI-based analysis to underpin the digital transition underway in the agricultural sector.
Both science and industry require new methodologies for crop phenotyping and phenotypic analysis, alongside IoT (Internet of Things) smart sensor and AI-based solutions, to address big data challenges within the global food security agenda.
Moving day is getting closer and we're getting excited!
From 2nd February 2020 our new HQ site on Lawrence Weaver Road will be open for business. So please be patient while our teams, currently based at Huntingdon Road, move across to the new site in early February. Our phone numbers and emails remain the same but our postal address will change to 93 Lawrence Weaver Road, Cambridge, CB3 0LE
NIAB Digital is a new interactive farm software platform, giving farmers and agronomists the ability to map, manage, store, share and compare farm, crop and research data, launched by NIAB at the 2017 Cereals Event.
NIAB welcomed Her Majesty The Queen to Cambridge on Tuesday 9th July with a celebration of 100 years of crop science.
As part of the organisation’s Centenary celebrations CEO and Director Dr Tina Barsby accompanied The Queen as she met staff in the Sophi Taylor Building Conference Centre and glasshouses at NIAB’s Park Farm field station on the outskirts of Cambridge.
It's moving week at NIAB!
Our Agricultural Crops Characterisation, Pathology, Ornamentals Crops Characterisation, Analytical Services (including NIAB LabTest), OSTS, and crop transformation teams are moving from the Huntingdon Road site into our fantastic new 'Barn 1' at our Cambridge Park Farm site over the next week or so. Take a look at some images from the new build before everyone moves in.
