The Agricultural industry is of major ecological, economic, and social importance. With the population increasing and agricultural land decreasing it is essential to find ways to sustain and promote the production of plants and animals for human use. Even the supermarkets are finally jumping on the sustainable agriculture band wagon (or should that be tractor). There are some of us however who have been aware of the importance and commercial viability of agriculture for sometime. GenStat software was born and bred in the agricultural field and we’ve stayed loyal to our users. Over the years, as sciences become more interdisciplinary, GenStat took the cue and branched out to embrace all bio and life sciences: areas we remain deeply committed to.
