North Wyke Farm Platform, UK

RR-NW Logo The Rothamsted Research ‘North Wyke Farm Platform’ in South West England, UK, is a BBSRC-funded National Capability that provides a globally unique facility to quantify multiple processes that underpin the development of management strategies to reduce the environmental and economic footprint of ruminant livestock production in temperature grasslands. The North Wyke Farm Platform comprises three farm-level experimental systems and associated dedicated laboratory facilities and core data repositories (field and water chemistry, water flow rate, greenhouse gas emissions from soil and livestock, agronomic data and farm management records) to provide the foundation for full Life Cycle Analyses of contrasting management interventions.
