… providing targeted, market-specific, sustainable solutions
Growers are constantly looking for ways to improve crop performance and quality. However, in doing so it is vitally important to consider market needs and trends in addition to the economic and environmental implications of any new or revised strategy.
For many species, crop management for market needs is as important as yield.
With in-depth knowledge of all horticultural and agricultural crop production issues, coupled with detailed knowledge of market trends, ADAS provides expert research, help and advice for Government, Levy Boards, growers and suppliers so that performance can be improved without harming the environment, biodiversity or profitability.
Combining knowledge of crop physiology with chemical and physical expertise, ADAS optimises the desirable components of a crop for use in biofuels, biocomposites and in higher value applications such as biocides and personal care products.

- Crop utilisation
Working with traditional and novel crops (food and non-food) to enhance quality characteristics and yield and to develop new markets. Taking crops from the experimental stage through to development of commercial products such as natural cosmetics.
- Energy crops
Evaluating the carbon footprint and environmental impacts (including landscape and biodiversity) of biofuel production.
- Genetic improvement
Advising government and corporate clients on key issues regarding legislation surrounding the genetic improvement of food and non-food crops.
