Rural Business Research

Rural Business Research (RBR) combines the forces of some of Britain's top researchers in the field of farming, the environment and rural business.

We are valued suppliers to many organisations looking for rigorous fundamental and applied research and the powerful application of data.

RBR is totally independent. A consortium of leading academic units delivering projects for:

  • government
  • levy-funded research bodies
  • research councils, and
  • commercial clients

From research teams based around the country, RBR provides you with exceptional expertise. Deep local knowledge from specific regional studies, national data collection and analysis, economic and environmental modelling and assessments.

We also complete the largest survey of its kind in this country, the Farm Business Survey, carried out for Defra.
