Title: Optimising water use and soil carbon sequestration – can agricultural co-cropping systems provide multiple benefits to address climate change?
This project explores agricultural co-cropping systems as a solution for sustainable water use and soil carbon sequestration, thereby ensuring food security in the face of climate change. It focusses on disentangling hydrological, eco-physiological and biogeochemical interlinkages via plant-soil-water interactions to gain a better understanding of the processes underlying optimal co-cropping systems for multiple benefits, and water use and carbon sequestration particularly in Scotland.
