Water-table management in lowland agricultural peatlands for climate change mitigation

Project overview. Peatlands are carbon-rich wetlands that occupy just three per cent of the world’s land surface area (12% in the UK) but store a similar amount of carbon to all terrestrial vegetation, as well as supporting unique biodiversity. Read more

Molecular breeding in raspberry to improve fruit quality PhD

An opportunity has arisen for a fully-funded PhD studentship through a collaboration between Cranfield University and Edward Vinson Ltd, a Kent-based soft fruit breeding company. Read more

Ancient grain for modern times: Diversity of naked barley for human health and agroecology.

Project Background.  Naked barley (also known as hull-less barley) has been grown and eaten for thousands of years, but has been largely forgotten in Europe, even though the grain offers solutions to current challenges of poor diet and unsustainable food systems. 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

Why are there so few C2 grasses?

Overview (<300 words). The vast majority of plant species use C3 photosynthesis. However, a turbo-charged form of photosynthesis called C4 evolved independently in nearly 70 lineages and is used by our most productive food and bioenergy crops. Read more

Quantifying carbon content in European agricultural land - SENSE CDT

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

QUADRAT DTP: The future of irrigated agriculture in Europe's mountainous regions; exploring trade-offs and synergies for climate adaptation

This project will address the need for sustainable agricultural water management strategies under climate change. It will explore the trade-offs between (changes in) water availability, crop water demand, irrigation practices, and other socio-economic factors. Read more

Identifying predictors of deforestation across Brazilian landscapes

Project Rationale. Deforestation in Brazil has global implications for both biodiversity loss and climate change mitigation. Brazil is also globally important for food production as the world’s largest producer of soy, beef, chicken, coffee and sugarcane1. Read more
