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

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

Bridging the gap between environment and health – exposure assessment of potentially harmful agents in soil

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. 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

Centre for Doctoral Training PhDs in Plant Sciences

The School of Biological Sciences at the University of Aberdeen has a world-leading reputation for pure and applied research across the biological sciences, with a broad cross-cutting theme of understanding the fundamental biological consequences of global environmental change. Read more

BBSRC supported BARIToNE Collaborative Training Partnership (CTP) PhD programme

The Barley Supply chain has come together to form the International Barley Hub (IBH) in order to collaboratively drive research priorities that will impact the sustainability of barley production over the course of this century. 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

PhD position in the Restoration of Soil Microbial and Invertebrate Biodiversity in Urban Greenspaces

Exposure to soil biodiversity in urban greenspaces can promote human and wildlife health by impacting their microbiomes. However, the development of soil biodiversity following aboveground restoration is poorly understood, as are the pathways through which people are exposed to this biodiversity. Read more

Quantifying carbon content in European agricultural land

Farming practices and interventions that sequester and store carbon in agricultural soils can significantly contribute to climate change mitigation, as well as support farmer’s adaptation to increasing frequency of extreme events, droughts and floods. Read more
