AHDB invests £500,000 every year in storage research. The programme not only focuses on sprout suppression but also quality and store environment, reflecting the need for an integrated approach to store management in the future.
Storage trials explained
Watch Adrian give an overview of the research programme at Sutton Bridge Crop Storage Research or explore each of the projects in more detail on this page. To find out what these results mean in practice, sign up to our regular storage events ahdb.org.uk/events or arrange a one-to-one visit from one of our Storage Network Partners.
