Novel Knowledge Exchange Approaches for Sustainable Agriculture

NERC

The overall aim of this NERC Knowledge Exchange Programme (KEP) is to identify and implement knowledge exchange activities that enhance the use of science in making food production systems for the UK environmentally sustainable, so they do not degrade the environmental systems that underpin them. The KEP is led by Professor Bill Sutherland of Cambridge University, Department of Zoology, and includes partners at the Universities of Leeds, Reading and Bangor, and the Plymouth Marine Laboratory. Manchester’s contribution is to focus on the sustainable management of soil, and we aim to (a) produce a synopsis of threats to soils and evidence for the effects management interventions on them; and (b) identify key knowledge needs for evidence-based management of soils for ecosystem services, including soil fertility, carbon storage, and sustainable food production.
