The Park Grass Experiment, a National Capability supported jointly by the BBSRC and the Lawes Agricultural Trust, is the oldest experiment on permanent grassland in the world. Started by the founding fathers of Rothamsted Research, Lawes and Gilbert, in 1856, the experiment continues to exemplify the value of long-term studies to investigate effects of biotic and abiotic factors on how the number of plants in a population changes over time, above- and below-ground plant community composition and microevolutionary change.

To celebrate the 160th anniversary of this world-famous experiment, Rothamsted Research invites you to ‘160 years of Park Grass’.

This is a free public event, but booking is essential.
