Next year marks the 175th Anniversary of Rothamsted, our origin being dated as the first plantings of the Barnfield and Broadbalk Experiments in 1843. Broadbalk is identified as the longest running scientific experiment in the world by Guinness World Records, and the experiments together are rightfully acknowledged as marking the beginnings of modern agricultural science. To celebrate the unique role of the Classical and other Long-Term Experiments in agricultural science, we are holding a conference to explore their role in resolving questions regarding sustainable agriculture. The conference will follow a recent Global Long-Term Experiments workshop that began to plan a Global Long-Term Experiments Network (GLTEN), assessing its progress and viability.
