EMR – Science in the Garden of England
We are a major organisation in the UK for research on horticultural crops and plants and their interactions with the environment. Our research on perennial fruit crops is known internationally and we are a significant source of pride regionally.
Our mission is to conduct high-quality strategic and applied research in horticultural and environmental sciences, and to deliver knowledge, products and services that benefit public and private customers.
Our vision is to be recognised as the pre-eminent research institute in the UK, with a significant international reputation for strategic and applied research, development and innovation in horticulture, with particular emphasis on perennial and clonally propagated crops.
Capturing the socio-economic impact of East Malling Research assesses the contribution of EMR’s research over the last 100 years.
