ASSIST is an initial five-year £11 million research programme that, with support from the farming industry, will meet the challenge of feeding growing populations without causing unacceptable environmental damage.

The UK Centre for Ecology & Hydrology in partnership with Rothamsted Research and British Geological Survey will develop innovative farming systems in collaboration with industry and stakeholders to:

  • Increase efficiency of food production
  • Improve resilience to extreme events 
  • Reduce the environmental foot print of agriculture


New ways to grow more food with less environmental impact
