Back to the land: labour, agriculture and ecological transition

Project Description. The global food system is in crisis, driven by ecological and climate catastrophes, plantation monocultures, labour exploitation (particularly of migrants), rising input prices due to war, and in the UK Brexit and soaring land values, alongside food poverty. Read more

Co-benefits and Trade-offs for Regenerative Agriculture

Project description. Nearly 70% of UK land area and 50% of European Union (EU) land is used for agriculture. These landscapes have been shaped by centuries of large-scale human impacts through traditional or intensive land-use systems. Read more

Project at Queen's University Belfast: Environmental DNA from Fasciola parasites as a novel biomarker to improve agriculture in the UK

Fasciola hepatica, usually termed "the temperate liver fluke", is found worldwide and causes disease known as fasciolosis. This infection caused by helminth parasites, primarily impacts on ruminant production, including within the UK and many other European countries. Read more

The impact of peat free compost alternatives on the physical, nutritional and sensory quality of kale

Peat is a finite resource that has been exploited by the horticulture industry, leading to damage of peatland habitats. Peat products are being phased out in the UK and Ireland and replaced with peat-free alternatives, such as biochar, coir, and bark composts. Read more

Inga agroforestry to enhance soil regeneration and carbon sequestration in degraded tropical soils.

Extensive tracts of land in the tropics have already been cleared of forest, used first to grow crops and then as pasture. The removal of the tropical forest severely diminishes the capacity of the ecosystem to retain nutrients and carbon in the soil. Read more

IoT techniques for e-agriculture

The aim of this project is to design a distributed embedded system that can collect data in real-time for agricultural management, such as rice field water management, with IoT (Internet of Things) techniques. Read more

Grass silage effluent: Environmental impacts and management implications( Ref: WD_2022_09_WSCH)

Post summary. Effluent is produced as a byproduct of the ensiling process and represents both a potent source of contamination to watercourses and a valuable source of nutrients which can be recycled within the farm system. Read more

Understanding the role of fungal effector proteins in antagonistic fungus–microbe interactions

Background. Fungi secrete a collection of proteins to their surrounding environments. In the case of plant-pathogenic fungi, many of these proteins are virulence factors, termed effectors, which function to promote host colonization through the modulation of plant physiology or immunity1. Read more

Capturing the agronomic, economic and carbon benefits of new clover varieties into a Carbon Profit Index

Project aims. To create a Carbon-Profit Index (CPI) comprising a new agronomic assessment protocol that reduces the carbon footprint (CF) of managed grass/clover swards while protecting the economic value (EV) and sustainability of grassland farming. Read more
