Our students and researchers can access an extensive network of farms and research units at the University's Camden campus.

Plant Breeding Institute

The research conducted at the Plant Breeding Institute (PBI) concentrates on plant production, plant breeding and related areas. Plant breeding encompasses a wide range of skills and disciplines including molecular biology, plant pathology, agronomy and cereal chemistry.


Centre for Carbon, Water and Food

The big issues facing the world today – building sustainable food, water and energy supplies – will not be solved by single-focus, reductionist approaches. We need a multidisciplinary approach, in which various environmental and related specialisations can be integrated in collaborative projects that aim to find solutions to secure a sustainable future.
