  Predicting African insect crop pests in real-time
  Dr S White, Dr C Cobbold, Dr P Gonzalez-Moreno, Dr S Murphy
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Crop pests are of serious and growing concern throughout Africa, causing significant economic and dietary impacts on humans and livestock.
  Crop pollination, pest regulation and soil management: Ecological intensification for sustainable food production
  Dr M Garratt, Dr T Breeze
Applications accepted all year round
Growing populations are placing an ever-increasing demand on agricultural systems to provide sufficient foods, particularly in the developing world.
  Development of Polymeric Nanocarriers in Continuous Flow for the Controlled Release of Agrochemicals
  Dr F Vilela, Dr V Arrighi
Application Deadline: 8 February 2019
In recent years, there has been major advances in the area of nanotechnology applied to agriculture and the environment. Nonetheless, many issues remain to be addressed for this technology to have a significant impact.
  SCENARIO: The impacts of long-term declines in insect abundance on ecosystem function
  Mr D Roy, Prof T Oliver, Prof J Thomas, Dr T Johns
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
The plight of insects has generated worldwide attention from the scientific community and wider public. Recent interest was stimulated by a 27 year study(1) suggesting a loss of 75% in the biomass of flying insects from Protected Areas in Germany, quickly labelled as ‘ecological Armageddon’.
  Landscape diversity underpins sustainable agriculture in sub-saharan africa
  Dr J Storkey
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
The previous secretary of the United Nations, Kofi Anan, called for a uniquely African green revolution in response to the need to increase productivity while reducing the negative impacts of industrialised agriculture on the environment and societies.

Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
The previous secretary of the United Nations, Kofi Anan, called for a uniquely African green revolution in response to the need to increase productivity while reducing the negative impacts of industrialised agriculture on the environment and societies.
  The genomics of sperm killing gene drive
  Dr T Price, Prof G Hurst, Prof S Paterson
Applications accepted all year round
Many selfish genetic elements spread rapidly through populations by killing gametes that do not carry them. This fascinating phenomena also has practical applications.
  Wider benefits of the National Pollinator Strategy

  Bioprospecting for plant growth promoting microbes
  Dr T Mauchline, Dr I Clark
Application Deadline: 20 January 2019
Naturally occurring soil microbes resident in the root microbiome have been shown to benefit plants through increased macro and micro nutrient availability, hormonal growth modulation, abiotic stress relief as well as disease suppression.
  Metabolic constraints arising from the loss of organic carbon and structure from soils
  Dr A Neal, Prof J Crawford
Application Deadline: 20 January 2019
Organic carbon is often implicitly linked with soil structure and its rapid loss from conventionally managed agricultural soils is a cause of serious concern.
