The Allerton Project has a broad scope to conduct research into agri-environmental issues at a range of scales, from experimental plot to landscape scale. Research results are used to inform both practice on the ground, through events for farmers and other agricultural professionals at Loddington, and policy at the national level. The results are also shared with the scientific community through publication in peer-reviewed journals.
Our small research team achieves this by working across a range of disciplines in collaboration with universities and other research organisations across the country. We combine substantial research projects with PhD and MSc student projects to build a coherent picture of a range of integrated issues on and around our own farm at Loddington.
