Evaluating returns to climate emergency humanitarian early intervention

This Jameel Observatory (. https://jameelobservatory.org/. ) funded PhD studentship will use risk prediction and economic modelling methodologies to investigate the cost-effectiveness of responding to predicted food security emergencies (Forecasted Based Action). Read more

Sustainable urban horticulture: managing soils for nutritional crops

Our research has demonstrated that there is potentially enough land in UK urban areas for urban horticulture to make an important contribution to UK fruit and vegetable production1. Read more

Memory in vegetation response to environmental fluctuations (Advert Reference: RDF22-R/EE/GES/LIU)

Plants live in and respond to fluctuating environments around them. Importantly, many plant responses are not only driven by current environmental conditions, but show “memory” to conditions in the past. Read more

Capturing the agronomic, economic and carbon benefits of new clover varieties into a Carbon Profit Index

Project aims. To create a Carbon-Profit Index (CPI) comprising a new agronomic assessment protocol that reduces the carbon footprint (CF) of managed grass/clover swards while protecting the economic value (EV) and sustainability of grassland farming. 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

Machine learning methods for the human microbiome (QUINCE_E21EPSRC)

This project based in Dr Quince’s group at the Earlham Institute (. https://www.earlham.ac.uk/quince-group). will use machine learning to develop new computational methods for the integrated analysis of metagenomics and metabolomics data from the human microbiome. 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

Conservation of pollinator biodiversity and sustainable management of pollination services in agroecosystems

Wild and managed pollinators provide a wide range of benefits to society in terms of contributions to food security, farmer and beekeeper livelihoods, social and cultural values, as well as the maintenance of wider biodiversity and ecosystem stability. Read more

Project at Queen's University Belfast - Nutritional programming in replacement dairy heifers: Future-proofing herd performance, health and behaviour

Project background. The lifetime performance of a dairy calf is impacted by its health, nutrition and environment, with a sub optimal position in any of these factors affecting the animal’s ability to achieve its genetic potential. Read more

The impact of peat free compost alternatives on the physical, nutritional and sensory quality of kale

Peat is a finite resource that has been exploited by the horticulture industry, leading to damage of peatland habitats. Peat products are being phased out in the UK and Ireland and replaced with peat-free alternatives, such as biochar, coir, and bark composts. Read more
