The Future of Long-term Experiments in Agricultural Science – 21st to 23rd May 2018


Long-term research plays a major role in designing future agricultural systems and understanding the consequences of new practices and technologies. Worldwide, numerous long-term experiments (LTEs) or other long-term research platforms have been established, following a tradition that started with the first classical long-term trials planted in 1843 at Rothamsted in the UK.

This year is the 175th anniversary of these trials and of Rothamsted as an agricultural research institution. To mark the occasion, Rothamsted Research will host an international conference to celebrate the unique role of long-term experiments in agricultural science, review lessons learned from similar studies worldwide, identify new questions to ask and discuss new ways of doing such long-term research in the future.

Deadline for abstracts: Wednesday 28 February 2018 @ 17:00hrs
