Sow the Seed: Support plant science of the future and join Friends of NIAB Innovation Farm

As a Friend of NIAB Innovation Farm you can support our work in highlighting the vital role of plant science and crop genetic improvement in boosting food production, conserving resources and tackling climate change to a wide range of audiences.

Charitable donations from leading benefactors in the world of business, politics and farming helped establish NIAB in 1919 to address post-war food shortages through Better Seeds, Better Crops. Today, the urgency of the global food security issue, and the critical importance of crop science in providing solutions, have once again highlighted the essential role of charitable donations in supporting NIAB's vital work as an agricultural charity.
