It is important that research considers the rotation as a whole and the interaction of the individual elements (as well as looking at these aspects in isolation); however, long term rotational system studies are becoming increasingly rare. Recognising both the practical and strategic importance of these areas, dedicated farming systems research is being actively pursued within NIAB TAG, and our unique expertise continues to push the boundaries in this type of research.

Examples of current research projects include:
