Long term monitoring studies are a valuable strategic resource that are difficult to maintain through short term or commercial funding and hard to replace once lost. Within East Anglia (notably at Morley) there are several long-term studies that provide unique data and are excellent research platforms.
Morley Long Term Studies (LoTS) is a continuation of NIAB's original National Agronomy Centre and MENTOR work, covering many of the long-term strategic field trials, including STAR and the Saxmundham Experimental site (est. 1899) and long-term wheat, barley and sugar beet fungicide response trials. These trials have focused on long term strategic agronomy and monitoring.
