Dr. David George describes the role of Crop Health and Protection (CHAP) in driving forward the agri-tech revolution. CHAP at Sand Hutton near York, one of the Government's four Agri-Tech Centers supported by Innovate UK, has been charged with the task of finding scientific and technological solutions to the practical problems facing growers. The center brings together leading scientists, farmers, advisors, innovators and businesses to understand industry challenges, drive research and innovation and develop and trial solutions to transform crop systems. Its aim is to translate and promote these solutions for market adoption and so improve crop productivity. To ensure product-tailored, robust, reliable and fully repeatable approaches can be developed and deployed using these new products and practices, CHAP has invested in an ‘Advanced Glasshouse Facility' (AGF), based at Stockbridge Technology Centre (STC) in North Yorkshire, a site with more than 50 years' experience in running applied trials for the crop protection industry.
