Nursery Stock

Nursery stock research at NIAB EMR draws on our expertise in the physiological basis for plant responses to their environment, including responses to abiotic  and biotic stresses such as water deficits or insect pests, and genetic improvement.

Working directly with the HNS sector, we aspire to develop new cultivars, crop protection regimes and improved production methods to assist the nursery stock industry to meet the needs of customers while maintaining sustainable production systems. NIAB EMR also undertakes research on behalf of the UK government, to assist in a more fundamental understanding of plant-related factors that then have an influence on the quality of ornamental nursery stock.
