Bristol researcher discusses the importance of academic and industrial collaboration to future wheat yield increase:

At a recent meeting of the Royal Agricultural Society of England Bristol Researcher Professor Keith Edwards emphasized the need for UK academics and industrialists to work together to achieve the kind of yield increases required if we are to meet future demands. During his speech he suggested that by establishing an environment that encouraged collaborative projects the UK has put itself in the best possible position to deliver, in the face of climate change, the required future yields and hence make a significant contribution to global food security.
