The aims of the UKPSF are to:

  1. Promote the importance of plant science for societal benefit.
  2. Provide a forum for discussion, debate and information exchange that is independent and inclusive across the breadth of plant science.
  3. Provide a focus and contact point for UK plant and crop science.

The UKPSF liaises with Government, devolved administrations, funding bodies, industry, scientific bodies, learned societies, community research groupings, those involved in the setting of education curricula, end users and general society to achieve the aims outlined above.
