Other public bodies in England and Wales also support research and development relevant to the organic sector. In addition, the developed administrations in Scotland and Northern Ireland support some relevant research and development within wider research and development programmes.
Therefore this report should not be regarded as a complete account of all UK research and development relevant to the organic sector.
