  Can we reduce the use of single use plastics in food production?
  Dr C Stevens
Application Deadline: 22 February 2019
Single use and short life-span plastics have received a lot of media attention in the last 12 months. Ultimately plastics we dispose of can end up in soils, water courses and oceans.
  Sustainable crop production in Chile: Challenges, solutions and the role of biodiversity
  Dr M Garratt
Application Deadline: 22 February 2019
This is an exciting PhD opportunity combining academic and industrial experience to form intellectually challenging and applied research with practical outcomes for fruit growers.
  Saving Water with Smart Irrigation and Monitoring System based on Machine Learning
  Dr J Han
Application Deadline: 22 February 2019
The overall aim of this project is to explore the capacity of deep machine learning techniques to analyse and extract meaningful features from meteorological data, soil moisture sensing data, and plant based sensory data (thermal imaging).
  New tools for predicting spread of Fusarium wilt in banana
  Dr M Grant
Application Deadline: 22 February 2019
Banana and plantain rank among the world’s most valuable primary agricultural commodities. Unfortunately, banana is challenged by several important pests and diseases, the most notorious of which is the fungal pathogen Foc Tropical Race 4 (TR4), which causes Fusarium wilt.
  Pest Control for the 21st Century: Integrating Biological Approaches for the Management of Crop Pests
  Dr K Wilson
Application Deadline: 22 February 2019
With increasing concerns over the environmental impact of chemical pesticides, there is a pressing need to develop innovative, environmentally-friendly alternatives to chemicals.
  Improving soil health in apple and pear orchards
  Dr C Stevens
Application Deadline: 22 February 2019
A healthy soil can increase yields, improve fruit quality, reduce the need for irrigation, and help protect the environment so it is no wonder that there is increasing interest in ensuring that soils are healthy.
  Can we reduce food waste in the supply chain from farm to fork?
  Dr M McAinsh
Application Deadline: 22 February 2019
The global food production system is under increasing stress both from an increase in demand for food (>50% rise in demand by 2050), and pressures on production.
  Multispectral imaging of potato to improve yields under drought stress
  Dr L Bell
Application Deadline: 20 February 2019
Potato crop yield is severely affected by drought and heat stress. Extremes in UK summer temperatures and periods of drought are likely to increase due to climate change, and new methods are required to maintain yields.
  Up the apples and pears! Precision management of orchards to increase fruit production sustainably
  Dr A Blackburn
Application Deadline: 20 February 2019
Be in at the start of a revolution in fruit production! While precision agriculture is becoming established for arable crops, such approaches have yet to be developed in the production of top fruit such as apples and pears.
