Alltech Crop Science is partnering with Rothamsted Research, one of the oldest agricultural research institutes in the world, for a strategic alliance in the field of agricultural research. Rothamsted has provided cutting-edge science and innovation for more than 170 years.
This alliance is part of Alltech’s commitment to advancing its research in microbiology, bio-chemistry and nutrigenomics, and to bridge the gap between science and sustainability. Researchers will investigate on-farm applications to improve soil, crop, feed and livestock health with the intention of improving homegrown feed.
“Alltech Crop Science is eager to identify the challenges of the future,” said Robert Walker, general manager, Alltech Crop Science. “By forming strategic alliances with world-class institutes, such as Rothamsted Research, we are provided with a better understanding of the needs and wants of today’s crop.”
“The facility at Rothamsted Research, North Wyke, provides world-leading research to address key questions relating to silage health and feed quality,” said Michael Lee, head of site and professor at North Wyke Farm Platform. “I very much look forward to developing this relationship with Alltech.”
