Soils are a key agricultural resource, but we are facing a crisis of increased degradation of health and quality. It is essential to broaden our understanding of our soils and related ecosystems so that we can use and manage them in a productive and sustainable way. Understanding how soil works, and the impact agricultural practices have on soil structure, health and mass helps to bridge the gap between fundamental science and practical know-how and is a challenge for many soil science researchers.

CHAP, Agri-EPI and Cranfield University are proud to jointly host this webinar from their state-of-the-art Phenotyping & Soil Health Facility.

Dr Wilfred Otten, Professor of Soil Biophysics and Dr Toby Waine, Senior Lecturer in Applied Remote Sensing will provide an overview of the world-leading facility including case studies that demonstrate how the complex interdependencies between water, soil, tillage and crops can be simulated, not just within seasons, but throughout the rotational cycle at representative spatial and temporal scales. From tillage, through drilling, plant establishment and crop development, to harvest and post-harvest.

Representatives from two of the UK Agri-tech Centres, Agri-EPI and CHAP will also be on hand to answer your questions and facilitate discussion with regards to other soil health issues currently impacting growers.
