I am a Soil Scientist at ADAS with specialist knowledge of soil and nutrient management and diffuse pollution of air and water from agricultural systems. I joined ADAS in 2003 following a PhD at the University of Leeds. I have detailed knowledge of national fertiliser recommendation systems and precision farming techniques for improved soil and nutrient management. My current R&D projects focus on precision farming, improved nutrient management and the environmentally sustainable recycling of organic materials to land. I currently lead the Defra funded 'Mob grazing' project (2021-2026), and the multi-partner EU Interreg project ‘Increasing the speed and uptake of innovation in the field vegetable and potato sectors: defining a new approach for delivering cost effective research (INNO-VEG) (2018-2023).
