Midlands Integrative Biosciences Training Partnership (MIBTP) PhD Minimising food loss and waste through breeding - Uncovering the physiological and genetic control of brown heart in Brassica napus

One of the largest limitations to food security is food loss and waste. Crop discolouration at harvest or postharvest in root vegetables can lead to significant crop losses, as crops are less appealing for consumers (Adams and Brown, 2007; Aschemann-Witzel et al., 215). Read more

Understanding tree anchorage to make forests more resilient to climate change

Forests provide a multitude of ecosystem services. Furthermore, their ability to help regulate the atmosphere in terms of capturing and storing carbon means they are a key component in helping to battle climate change. Read more

How much carbon is stored 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

Developing methods to quantify the potential for greenhouse gas removal using bioenergy - carbon capture and storage to speed up the establishment and uptake of perennial Bio-energy crops.

Crop yield and soil carbon turnover models are parameterized by using data from carefully controlled and measured field and lab experiments and when used spatially in predictive mode are driven by existing spatial data sets of weather, climate, soil types and land use at various scales. Read more

Net Zero crops: Mitigating greenhouse gas emissions from linseed (PhD)

Agriculture is a major source of greenhouse gas emissions, largely driven by fertiliser applications. This includes the production of nitrous oxide, a greenhouse gas (GHG) approximately 300 times more powerful at driving climate warming than carbon dioxide over 100 years. Read more
