Horticulture at UoR

montage of horticulture picturesThe University of Reading has an international reputation in the fields of Horticulture and Landscape Management. Its long standing degree courses have produced many of the key players throughout the supply chain in UK commercial horticulture. The Centre for Horticulture and Landscape has been maintained within the School of Biological Sciences (Plant Science Laboratories) to act as a focus for this important discipline.

Research at Reading continues to provide a consistent flow of relevant information and new ideas to the industry. We were involved in some of the early work on the impacts of climate change and remain leaders in this field. In recent years we have pioneered and championed the use of spectral filters and ushered in a new generation of crop forecasting techniques with the grower rather than the scientist in mind.
