Meeting the challenges

Agriculture and food production face enormous challenges in the years ahead. NIAB Innovation Farm demonstrates how crop genetic improvements can address the issues of:

Food security      Climate Change      Sustainable Resources      Health and Nutrition

Global food supplies need to increase by 70% over the next 40 years to keep pace with the demands of a growing world population. That increase must be achieved on less land, using fewer resources and with mounting scientific concern over the impact of climate change. In addition, plants are becoming important resources for the production of medicines and health-promoting compounds.

NIAB Innovation Farm’s exhibits show progress in improving:

  • Yield
  • Quality
  • Disease resistance
  • Seasonality
  • Diversity
  • Performance
  • Resource use efficiency
