Biological and Ecological
organic tillage farms produce low yields of crops. We plan to investigate how the use of clovers can improve yields and growth of crops.
We will extract enterococcal bacteria from hen and duck uropygial glands and test their ability to produce bacteriocins to kill competing bacteria such as Micrococcus luteus.
We are investigating the effect that herbivores such as snails have on the production of defence anthocyanins by lettuce plants
Our project will be an immune system defence for horses in lick form and an onsite test for Hypoglycin A.
This project analyses the digestibility of silage being fed to animals on various farms and compares it with their lactating performance.
