ADAS

An Overview

Within the Soils & Nutrients team at ADAS we tend to work in groups of two to three soil scientists on a variety of projects.

This month we’ve mostly been working with farmers and government to meet statutory targets for cleaner water and improving wildlife habitats in three English catchments; developing a soil and nutrient management guide for horticultural growers including the use of precision farming technologies; assessing the effectiveness of agri-environment schemes in delivering better soil, air and water quality; restoring a former colliery and coke works to a mosaic of meadow grassland and woodland; and assessing the environmental impact (principally soil erosion risk) of the new East African Crude Oil Pipeline in Uganda and Tanzania.

Meanwhile we’ve been helping with proposals for NERC and GCRF funding and preparing to lead a new five-year Horizon 2020 project on sustainable permanent grassland systems and policies.
