Dr Ivan Grove was at About Drought today as a speaker for the Agriculture Interactive Session. He was discussing: 'if climate change mean crop change?'. He provided an overview of research undertaken in the DRY (UK Drought & Water Scarity Programme) on crop and drought experiements, and some reflections on the resilience of crops.
The agriculture session provided an opportunity to contribute to developing thinking around agriculture, water scarcity and drought.
The UK Droughts & Water Scarcity research programme is a five-year interdisciplinary , £12 million+ NERC programme in collaboration with ESRC, ESPRC, BBSRC and AHRC. It's supporting improved decision-making in relation to droughts and water scarcity by providing research that identifies, predicts and responds to the inter-relationships between their multiple drivers and impacts.
