Reducing food waste and risks from the bioaccumulation of pesticides in Cucurbits (pumpkins and courgettes) (Ref: CTP-SAI-024)

Cucurbits are a major global food source with an annual production of c. 240 Mt. However, food waste can be an issue. Pumpkins and courgettes (as well as other cucurbits, such as squashes, melons, etc) can bioaccumulate certain banned (organochlorine) pesticides present in soil from historic use. Read more

Innovative tillage for potato production within regenerative farming systems (Ref: CTP-SAI-052)

Farmers are increasingly interested in soil health, biological methods of increasing soil fertility, and reducing the need for synthetic inputs; an approach often referred to as regenerative agriculture. Read more

Improving barley as a sustainable, healthy wholegrain food crop (Ref: CTP-SAI-050)

This project aims to develop spring barley as a sustainable source of healthy wholegrains for the food sector. The UK grows >7m tonnes of spring barley each year, but very little is directly used in food, despite offering potential dietary health benefits. Read more

Testing the risks of chemicals to the Arbuscular Mycorrhiza Symbiosis (Ref: CTP-SAI-041)

Arbuscular mycorrhiza (AM) is a symbiosis formed between soil fungi and plant roots. Most land plants including our most widely grown crops benefit from this symbiosis. Read more

Controlling meiotic recombination in diploid potato (Ref: CTP-SAI-037)

Meiosis and recombination remain a major tool for crop breeding and improvement. Independent chromosome segregation and recombination provide a powerful means to combine variation from different sources. Read more
