Apples in a Warmer World – a visit to the climate change trial at Brogdale Collections

Organised by:

Horticulture Group

Brogdale Collections, UK

Registration Closed

This event is no longer available for registration.


The National Fruit Collections Trust has created and supported the “Apples in a Warmer World” long-term climate change apple production impact project to: 

  • provide professional and amateur fruit growers, breeders, pomologists and the supply chain with information on how apples might respond to possible climate change scenarios in the UK 
  • improve our understanding of how these possible climate scenarios might impact other perennial tree fruit crops 
  • provide a research facility and encourage engagement with the scientific community.

The tour will visit the bespoke 0.6 ha facility – three triple span polythene tunnels, with more than 15 different varieties of apple trees planted within, showing how the nine different modified environments are achieved.

In addition to an in-depth look at the climate change trial, the tour will also cover the other fruit collections held at Brogdale and show participants the breadth of the collections there.
