Professor Azam-Ali said: "The risks are significant. We now rely on just three or four plants to feed much of the planet. As bio-scientists we urgently need to find and improve more plants to increase the bread basket, to complement the crops we already have and to be resilient to our changing climates."

Professor Azam-Ali will lead the research centre as part of the global 'Crops for the Future' organisation, an international alliance hosted in Malaysia by Bioversity International and The University of Nottingham.

The buildings will be constructed using environmentally efficient technologies and materials. It is planned that the carbon neutral, energy efficient, buildings will use new green technologies to conserve energy, capture rainwater and utilise biomaterials from alternative crops.

CFFRC will also act as a visitor centre for schools, students and the public so they can learn about the plants that are indigenous to their own region and elsewhere.

In addition to new state-of-the-art research facilities CFFRC will have access to 50 hectares of oil palm plantation alongside the existing campus to develop field research on underutilised crops.
