With just 12 days to go until the UK hosts COP26, the Universities Network formally launched the Innovation Showcase website. Here you can find out how academics and partners, across the UK and beyond, are informing action and aiding adaptation to our changing climate.
Under the theme of ‘living on land and sea’, you'll see an innovation showcase of the University's work on Net Zero farming. Prof. Michael Lee, Interim Vice Chancellor and project lead describes the project as "Farming which will deliver highly nutritious food whilst capturing carbon from the atmosphere through soil management and plant growth define net zero farming. Intercropping of maize and lucerne will reduce input costs and emissions through protecting soil, reducing tractor fuel use and provide two crops from where one previously grew. Such solutions are part of the Net Zero Farm being delivered at Harper Adams University".
