Welcome to the INEW website
This Virtual Joint Centre brings together major UK and Indian wheat researchers with programmes on wheat improvement to determine the genetic control of nitrogen use efficiency in wheat. The Centre will coordinate activities, harmonise protocols, provide training opportunities for early career scientists and generate a unique range of genetic material, skills and research facilities.
Significant economic and environmental impacts will be achieved through the sustainable intensification of wheat production, which will reduce the use of nitrogen fertilisers by farmers, thus reducing crop production costs for farmers and the release of reactive nitrogen into the environment.
The centre brings together eleven partner organisations in India and the UK working on wheat improvement. The work is structured into Platforms and Exemplar Projects.
