  Soil health metrics for sustainable agricultural systems
  Dr S Haefele
Application Deadline: 15 April 2019
Why is this project important?. Soil is the foundation of all agricultural systems. It is a complex biophysical system of aggregated particles and pore networks that, if managed carefully, provides plants with the medium for roots to grow and extract water and nutrients in order to produce food and fibre.
  Towards more sustainable use of phosphorus in UK grasslands considering soil-plant interactions
  Dr V Niasar, Prof D Johnson, Dr S Lee
Applications accepted all year round
This ambitious project will lead to a major shift in how soil phosphorus (P), is managed in UK grasslands.
  The effects of soil management practices on CAZyme expression by soil microbial communities and their influence on soil structure and crop production
  Mr S Hall
Application Deadline: 7 April 2019
Understanding links between CAZyme expression by soil microbial communities and crop management and production. The project will use metagenomics to identify microbial communities in soil and their role in carbohydrate cycling that contribute to crop nutrition and resilience of soil structure.
  Manipulation of the soil microbial community in stabilising SOM to improve soil function
  Dr S O'Rourke, Prof N Holden
Application Deadline: 1 April 2019
Sustainable food production is top of the global policy agenda.
  Soil aggregation and organic carbon allocation induced by plant and microbial activity in the rhizosphere
  Dr C Mueller
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
The project ‘Self differentiation of soil aggregation and organic carbon allocation induced by plant and microbial activity in the rhizosphere’ is part of the DFG priority program 2089 “Rhizosphere Spatiotemporal Organisation – a Key to Rhizosphere Functions” (www.ufz.de/spp-rhizosphere).
  Bridging the gap between environment and health – exposure assessment of potentially harmful agents in soil
  Dr P Hooda
Applications accepted all year round
Our current understanding of soil exposure in the UK population is extremely limited. The current risk assessment paradigm makes large assumptions based on very uncertain data to estimate direct exposures via soil ingestion or dust inhalation.
  Urban Forest: testing tree performance to future hotter and drier conditions
  Dr P Rymer, Prof S Power, Prof M Tjoelker
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
The Hawkesbury Institute for the Environment (HIE) is a research institute within Western Sydney University. HIE has rapidly become a research leader in environmental and ecological research, with a strong reputation for delivering research outcomes of the highest quality.
  Understanding drought tolerance of potato using multispectral imaging technology
  Dr L Bell
Application Deadline: 25 March 2019
Potato crop yield is severely affected by drought and heat stress. Extremes in UK summer temperatures and periods of drought are likely to increase due to climate change, and new methods are required to maintain yields.
