Most crop productivity is limited by management. The research done by the Ecosystem Services team and Food From Thought will refine the management style of farmers to help close the global yield gap whilst ensuring natural environments and services are conserved.
Increase environmental sustainability on high-production agricultural landscapes.
“Our project focuses on quantifying ecosystem services on farms to increase environmental sustainability in agriculturally-intensive landscapes. The overarching goals are to measure farm impacts on environmental baselines, benefits of farm-based remediation, and advantages of ecosystem services to society and farmers.” - Andrew MacDougall
