About Sutton Bridge CSR

Sutton Bridge Crop Storage Research is the leading post-harvest applied research facility for agricultural storage in the UK. It is owned by the Agriculture & Horticulture Development Board and operated by its AHDB Potatoes division.


The Council's objectives for SBCSR are to ensure that it is a cost-effective research centre working for the benefit of the British potato industry. To achieve this, SBCSR is required to bid for levy-funded and publicly funded research contracts, undertakes a wide range of technology transfer activities and is also free to acquire external, private business.
