Partners launch five horticulture R&D fellowships

East Malling Trust (EMT), the Horticultural Development Company and the HTA have joined together to launch five five-year fellowships in horticultural R&D worth up to £50,000 each per annum.

It is hoped the funds will enable the partners to unlock more monies from other sources, including the EU. HTA director-general David Gwyther said: "In the context of the crisis that exists for horticultural R&D, I am delighted that key players in the sector have been able to come together to provide funding to assist in relieving the pressure."

EMT chairman Will Sibley added: "It is crucial that research continues to deliver real benefits to UK agriculture and horticulture."
