Climate change reduces the nutritional value of food crops

Increasing atmospheric CO. 2. concentrations and increasing temperatures are causing physiological responses in crops, which lead to them having reduced protein and micronutrient contents. Read more

Understanding genetic mechanisms of complex traits to improve potato breeding

Cultivated potato (Solanum tuberosum) plays a crucial role in addressing world food security. With the need to feed a growing population under rapidly changing climatic conditions comes the need to develop better adapted potato varieties. Read more

Nutrient bio-accessibility effects on the gut microbiota (WARREN_Q22CTP)

The project will explore the bioaccessibility of prebiotic fibres from natural matrices. Most of the evidence on the efficacy of prebiotics (fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS), galacto-oligosaccharides (GOS), arabinoxylan-oligosaccharides (AXOS)) has been collated using the extracted and highly refined oligomers.

E4 DTP NERC Understanding micronutrients provision in a changing global food system

Summary. Micronutrient deficiency is likely to be intensified with climate change. This work will model micronutrient supply for countries globally, highlighting inequalities in food security and health outcomes. Read more

Improving sustainable parasite control in British dairy cattle

The dairy industry is an essential part of UK food security. It faces an increased focus on sustainable farming practices which aim to reduce negative, and promote positive, environmental impacts whilst maintaining high levels of food production, food safety and animal welfare standards. Read more

Context-dependency of climate mitigation, biodiversity and ecosystem services in regenerative agriculture

Introduction. Driven by the need to limit global warming to below 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels and halt biodiversity decline, numerous policies and incentives across the UK and worldwide are convincing land managers to adopt “green” or “carbon farming” practices. Read more
