The world relies on agriculture for food and fuel, fibres and raw materials such as rubber. Agriculture employs a third of the world’s workers, although the industry is becoming increasingly automated through the application of new technologies and systems. In the past century alone, the development of genetically modified crops and energy-intensive mechanisation, fertilisers and pesticides has greatly reduced the need for large workforces. The sector is constantly being changed by technology, politics, public opinion and the climate, and agriculturalists need to adapt quickly to overcome challenges and embrace opportunities.

Extensive experience and knowledge

ADAS, an RSK company, is the UK’s largest independent provider of agricultural and environmental consultancy, with more than 75 years of practice and knowledge in the farming and environmental sector. We aim to translate science into pragmatic, workable solutions for agriculturalists, applying a combination of insight and practical experience, supported by science-based information, to help customers turn challenges into opportunities for business growth and development. Positioned at the interface of science and policy implementation, we aim to deliver cost-effective applied solutions while simultaneously understanding and implementing the underlying science.

Specialist teams

We provide a wide range of services across the agriculture and environmental sectors. We offer an extensive range of specialist teams that apply their combined knowledge and experience to support customers with services including agri-environmental policy analysis, climate change consultancy and specialist molecular diagnostics. When dealing with ecological issues, such as the presence of protected species, we collaborate closely with our dedicated environment business. We offer a chemical regulatory compliance and advice service through our separately branded Cambridge Environmental Assessments business, helping chemical manufacturers to achieve marketing authorisation for many active substances. Within the RSK group, our habitat management business offers vegetation and landscaping management contracting services for transport, utilities, local authorities and construction companies.

Trusted experts

By applying a deep understanding of agriculture and science, we provide our customers with bespoke solutions tailored to project requirements. We work closely with government agencies, corporate agro-chemical companies, tier 1 contractors and others to provide comprehensive services across the agriculture sector. Our specialist teams apply their knowledge to offer high-quality, cost-effective services, including chemical regulatory compliance, land finding services and environmental assessments. We work primarily within the UK, but also operate in Europe and further afield, boasting project experience in East Africa, China and India. Our clients trust in our outstanding reputation and the work of our internationally reputed scientists to deliver comprehensive, science-based solutions to challenges.

Meeting Regulations

Agriculture is a broad field encompassing many different disciplines. To meet the requirements of the regulatory frameworks that provide customers with operating licences, many obstacles must be overcome, including legislative change, seasonality, external factors such as pests and diseases, and government spending priorities. Thanks to the wide range of expertise within our wider group, we are in a good position to support clients in allaying a broad variety of challenges. Through the provision of timely intelligence and horizon scanning, we manage challenges promptly and effectively. We offer innovative digital technologies and alternatives to conventional approaches, saving time and labour.

Facilitating Improvement

Our customers aim to improve their business performance and resilience in a rapidly changing environment, while adhering to regulations in order to secure grant aid. Thanks to our specialist teams and unique ability to combine the latest scientific knowledge with extensive experience, we can support our clients in achieving their goals of the evaluation, modelling or quantification of environmental emissions from agriculture, achieving marketing approval for chemicals, and developing policies.
