Making Best Use of Genetic Resources for Regenerative Agriculture

Seminar Tent

NIAB is integrating regen-ag objectives into its genetics and pre-breeding activities, for example by improving the performance and viability of N-fixing pulse cropping options, investigating novel crop opportunities, and even exploring the potential for cover crops to become an additional source of revenue within the rotation. NIAB’s Professor Mario Caccamo, Dr Phil Howell and Dr Lydia Smith, with colleagues from SRUC, will lead a panel and Q&A discussion on how a progressive, science-based approach to regen-ag, offers the potential for high-yielding, profitable crop production to go hand in hand with reducing agriculture’s environmental and climate impacts.
