Soil and rhizosphere interactions for sustainable agri-ecosystems (GFS-SARISA)
This was a BBSRC-NERC joint call, administered by BBSRC
Combined funding total
Number of projects funded
Four projects were funded. For further details see the press release in related links (see the four projects listed under the 'Notes to editors' subheading).
Developed through the Global Food Security (GFS) programme and with relevance to the aims of the Living With Environmental Change (LWEC) partnership. This call responded to a recognised need for an improved understanding of agricultural soil and rhizosphere interactions to underpin the development of agricultural ecosystems ('agri-ecosystems').
- To encourage proposals that link the development of specific agricultural innovations with agri-ecosystems approaches to analyse the potential benefits
- To encourage proposals that draw on the combined expertise of bioscientists and environmental scientists, and those that link scales of research (laboratory/field/landscape)
