Research across NU Farms

The ongoing research at NU Farms plays a pivotal role in:

Our fourteen experimental farm research platforms focus on strategically important topics.

On-farm laboratories, glasshouses and conference facilities also support our research platforms. Newcastle University, and our partners, use them for teaching, research and knowledge exchange.
