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

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: Environmental DNA from Fasciola parasites as a novel biomarker to improve agriculture in the UK

Fasciola hepatica, usually termed "the temperate liver fluke", is found worldwide and causes disease known as fasciolosis. This infection caused by helminth parasites, primarily impacts on ruminant production, including within the UK and many other European countries. Read more

Project at Cranfield University: Optimizing UK landscapes for agroecosystem resilience

Project description. Biodiversity loss is an existential threat to global food security, and agriculture plays a pivotal role in the protection of species for agroecosystem resilience. Read more

Project at Cranfield University: Carbon sequestration in agricultural soils through silicate weathering

One of the most promising ‘geo-engineering’ methods to mitigate climate change is to capture CO. 2. from the air and react it with silicate rocks to form carbonate rocks, so permanently sequestering the CO. Read more

Forests in a changing environment: A study of nitrogen cycle feedbacks

  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
Project Highlights. Novel research to describe forest nitrogen cycle dynamics in response to global change. Access to one of the most extensively characterised ancient woodlands in the UK, facilitating opportunities for wider collaboration in forest ecology research. Read more

Global diversity and ecosystem functions of plant-microbe symbioses

  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
Project Highlights. We have discovered a previously unknown and abundant plant- mycorrhizal symbiosis with global distribution. 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
