Agriculture Postgraduate Research

Our research degrees help early career researchers to deliver solutions to global challenges. These include assuring future food security and the sustainability of agricultural production systems.

Research strengths

We offer research opportunities in agricultural production systems, food systems and social science. We look to:

  • enhance productivity and sustainability in livestock and arable agriculture
  • improve food production outcomes through consumer behaviour and human nutrition research
  • address sustainable development issues in relation to food, agricultural policy, and rural economies

We help farmers to tackle biotic crop threats and improve security. We do this through the Centre for Crop Health and Protection.
