Here at Rural Roots we know that you are busy planting, harvesting and planning for the next crop. To help you out we will highlight the most interesting new science and farming research for you. 

We'll look at the latest in agriculture, plant biology, growing systems, ecology, livestock, farming communities, epigenetics and anything else that we find interesting or relevant to farming in a sustainable fashion.

And just because we like fun facts, we'll also throw in cool or weird news about research and new technology for you to think about. You never know what might stimulate a new trend!

Since we like evidence based information, all research will be from reputable sources.
