  Modelling soil erosion and soil carbon dynamics in agricultural systems
  Dr M Galdos, Prof P Chapman
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Besides supporting food, feed, fuel and fibre production, soils provide ecosystems services such as storing carbon, filtering water and maintaining biodiversity.
  Developing novel methods of estimating crop yield and yield gap in smallholder agricultural systems using Earth Observation data
  Dr B Ogutu, Prof J Dash
Application Deadline: 12 January 2019
Information on crop yield and yield gap is important for planning, monitoring agricultural trends and identifying potential areas for sustainable intensification to improve agricultural productivity and ensure food security.
  Assessing the pollination efficiency of different species of bees on buzz-pollinated plants of agricultural significance
  Dr M Vallejo-Marin, Prof P Willmer
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Bees provide essential pollination services in both natural and agricultural systems. The recent and worrying decline in bee populations around the world has highlighted the importance of understanding the interaction of flowers and bees during pollination.
  Modelling the agriculture-deforestation interface in the Brazilian Amazon
  Prof D Moran, Dr R de Olivera Silva
Application Deadline: 10 January 2019
Project Summary. Mathematical and socio-ecological modelling will be used to understand the dynamics of land use change and agricultural intensification and deforestation related to beef cattle and soybean production in Brazil.
  Where technology and agricultural society meet: Exploring the spaces and places of interaction (ROSED1U19SF)
  Dr D Rose, Prof A Lovett
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
New technologies, including decision support tools, may contribute to the sustainable intensification of agriculture by improving productivity and efficiency.
  Quantifying Green House Gas fluxes under smallholder agricultural systems in Sub-Saharan Africa
  Dr B Ogutu, Prof J Dash
Application Deadline: 12 January 2019
The pressure to produce sufficient food to meet the nutritional needs of the burgeoning human population is the main driving force behind agricultural development.
  Field scale reconstruction of nineteenth century rural land use using first County Series OS maps and parish area books
  Prof N S Walford, Dr D Brown
Applications accepted all year round
The project will explore agricultural land use change in mid-nineteenth century England, which was a period of relatively high prosperity and stability before the onset of an era of decline and depression from the early 1870s through to the twentieth century.
  Emissions of Greenhouse Gases from Extensive Agriculture in the Indio-Gangetic Plain
  Dr H Boesch, Dr H Sembhi
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Agriculture is the world’s second-largest emitter of damaging greenhouse gases (GHG) after the energy sector. The future growth of the global population will result in additional pressures on the agricultural sector to secure food production whilst aiming to reduce GHG emissions.
  aqAMR: AMR at the interface of the agricultural and aquatic environments
  Dr T Connor, Prof P Kille
Application Deadline: 17 December 2018
The interface between aquatic systems, agricultural environments involved in livestock farming and human habitation represents, on a microbial ecology level, an interface between microbial populations that are all under different antimicrobial selection pressures.
  Exploring the ecological and evolutionary impacts of novel agricultural probiotics on naive microbial communities
  Dr P Iannetta, Prof E James, Dr E Harrison
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Background. Probiotic inoculants represent a major tool in the shift towards a more sustainable agriculture.
