Aberystwyth University research to protect crops given funds

Research in Aberystwyth to develop a "pollination control bag" to increase the yield of crops like wheat has been given a funding boost.

Aberystwyth University and three partner organisations were given £239,512 by the UK government towards developing the bag.

It will protect the crops against excess humidity, disease, drought and pests.

The money is a share of £16m distributed by the Agri-Tech Catalyst.
