Welcome

The Morley Agricultural Foundation (TMAF) is a Registered Charity (No. 1097174) which specifically supports farming and agricultural research in the East of England. It was formed in 2003 and inherited its assets from the Morley Research Centre (originally known as The Norfolk Agricultural Station).

The need for independent unbiased research does not diminish even with the prospect of fewer acres being farmed and with fewer people employed. New, well proven techniques are needed to enable farmers to cope with new crops, new economic conditions and the implications of extensive new environmental regulation. In particular, TMAF funds research into arable crops and related education project in East Anglia.

FUNDING

Currently, The Morley Agricultural Foundation provides funding in two main areas:

Research Grants towards projects in agreed areas of arable farming research.
Educational Grants in support of further education studies in approved areas of arable crop production.
