Data from the Achieving Sustainable Agricultural Systems programme (ASSIST)

This collection contains datasets produced as part of the Achieving Sustainable Agricultural Systems (ASSIST) programme. ASSIST is a long-term National Capability programme, jointly funded by NERC and BBSRC. With support from the farming industry, ASSIST will meet the challenge of feeding growing populations without causing unacceptable environmental damage. The UK Centre for Ecology & Hydrology in partnership with Rothamsted Research and British Geological Survey will develop innovative farming systems that increase food production with more efficient use of inputs to increase efficiency of food production, improve resilience to extreme events, and reduce the environmental foot print of agriculture.
