Research Group. FOODBIOSYSTEMS BBSRC DTP. UK grain production represents a value of £2 Billion in ex-farm gate value. Post-harvest losses and rejection due to fungal spoilage and mycotoxin contamination often represents between 5-10% of this value, especially in wet harvest years.
  FoodBioSystems DTP - Development of different natural biopesticide formulations of plant extracts for control of economically important cereal and grass diseases
  Prof N Magan, Dr G W Griffith, Dr A Medina Vaya, Dr S Palmer
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

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.
  FoodBioSystems DTP - Reducing seed loss and waste in umbelliferous crops
  Dr S Kourmpetli, Dr L Bell
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type
