The James Hutton Institute (JHI) is Scotland’s internationally recognised centre of research excellence in agriculturally relevant crop plants and their interactions with the environment, encompassing both biotic and abiotic stresses.
In Legume Futures, the JHI is responsible for leading Work Package 2 (Data management and novel system design) and is involved in all other WPs.
Ecologist, functioning and sustainability of arable plant systems.
