PhD Type

Research Group. FOODBIOSYSTEMS BBSRC DTP. Milk is a rich source of protein, calcium, iodine, magnesium and manganese, and is seen as a key mechanism via which health and nutrition can be improved in many countries, developed and developing alike.
  How does the intensity of tillage operations influence soil health and diversity?
  Dr N Cannon
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Soil health has become an important factor in defining the sustainability of agricultural systems. However there is still little evidence of how longer term agricultural management influences soil health.
