Developing a sustainable management system for the diamondback moth, a globally important crop pest

This project is available through the MIBTP programme. The successful applicant will join the MIBTP cohort and will take part in all of the training offered by the programme. For further details. Read more

Developing methods to quantify the potential for greenhouse gas removal using bioenergy - carbon capture and storage to speed up the establishment and uptake of perennial Bio-energy crops.

Crop yield and soil carbon turnover models are parameterized by using data from carefully controlled and measured field and lab experiments and when used spatially in predictive mode are driven by existing spatial data sets of weather, climate, soil types and land use at various scales. Read more

Environmental regulation of crop productivity

Crop productivity is highly dependent on environmental conditions. Understanding the mechanisms by which plants respond to environmental signals will therefore allow us to select for climate resilient crops and improve global food security. 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

How plants influence their root microbiome during phosphate starvation

This project is available through the MIBTP programme. The successful applicant will join the MIBTP cohort and will take part in all of the training offered by the programme. For further details. Read more

Engineering more water-use efficient crops: functional genomics of CO2 fixation during Crassulacean acid metabolism

The world is getting hotter and drier due to climate change, and the human population is growing rapidly to the extent that it has been predicted that we will need to increase crop yields by 50 - 70 % by 2050 in order to feed the predicted 9 - 10 billion people. Read more

Targeted engineering of quantitative traits in plants

Our ability to develop novel beneficial crop traits has significantly improved over the last century, although the ability to maintain this trajectory is limited by allelic diversity. Read more
