Welcome to the website of The Morley Agricultural Foundation, a charity set up to support farming in the East of England by funding research and education projects.

THE MORLEY AGRICULTURAL FOUNDATION (TMAF) is a Registered Charity (No. 1097174) which specifically supports farming in the East of England. It was formed in 2003 and inherited its assets from the Morley Research Centre (originally known as The Norfolk Agricultural Station).

The need for independent unbiased research does not diminish even with the prospect of fewer acres being farmed and with fewer people employed. New, well proven techniques are needed to enable farmers to cope with new crops, new economic conditions and the implications of extensive new environmental regulation. In particular, TMAF funds research into arable crops and related education projects in East Anglia.


Currently, The Morley Agricultural Foundation provides funding in two main areas:

Direct Grants towards projects in agreed areas of arable farming research.
Educational Grants in support of further education studies in approved areas of arable crop production.
