  Understanding the genetic basis for Ramularia disease resistance in barley
  Dr N Havis
Application Deadline: 3 March 2019
Ramularia leaf spot (RLS), caused by the fungus Ramularia collo-cygni, is a major disease of barley in many temperate countries. The disease has a long latent phase in the plant before symptoms appear, typically after flowering, leading to reduced grain yield and quality.
  Low carbon farming: making carbon accounting relevant to farming and food production
  Dr V Eory
Application Deadline: 3 March 2019
Agriculture and the food system is challenged by wide ranging environmental and social objectives, such as climate change mitigation and provision of healthy food.
  Remediation of contaminated land using waste soil coupled with biomass cropping
  Dr J Carfrae
Application Deadline: 3 March 2019
In Scotland, as progression is made towards a goal of zero waste to landfill, it is considered that phytoremediation utilising crops for biomass may provide opportunity to remediate contaminated waste soil whilst obtaining end products such as biodiesel, wood, or fibre with bioenergy crops viewed as a clean renewable source of energy.
  Quantifying the impacts of parasitism on livestock greenhouse gas emissions
  Dr N Fox
Application Deadline: 3 March 2019
It is widely recognised that greenhouse gases (GHGs) are a major contributor to climate change, and livestock are responsible for more GHG emissions than all other food sources.
  New insights into rumen acidosis from the volatile metabolome measured using SIFT mass spectrometry
  Prof R Dewhurst
Application Deadline: 3 March 2019
This project will use new selected-ion flow-tube mass spectrometry (SIFT-MS) equipment to provide a detailed analysis of cow breath and use it to explore mechanisms associated with sub-acute rumen acidosis (SARA).
  Farmers’ cattle breeding choices: balancing productivity, sustainability and food security objectives
  Dr K Glenk
Application Deadline: 1 March 2019
Achieving food security across society while improving the sustainability of food production is a challenge faced by agriculture and the wider food system.
