The four themes of the Rothamsted Research Science Strategy are :
- 20:20 Wheat ®: increasing wheat productivity to yield 20 tonnes per hectare in 20 years.
- Cropping Carbon: Optimising carbon capture by grasslands and perennial energy crops, such as Willow, to help underpin the UK's transition to a low carbon economy.
- Designing seeds: Harnessing our expertise in seed biology and biochemistry to deliver improved health and nutrition through seeds.
- Delivering Sustainable Systems: Designing, modelling and assessing sustainable agricultural systems that increase productivity while minimising environmental impact.
