What Future for our Farming Systems?: Environmental Challenges and Integrated Solutions
This conference will seek to encourage debate on the benefits to be gained from more sustainable resource use and greater integration of different land uses on lowland and upland farming systems. It will present the best possible scientific understanding of the complexities associated with how best to achieve such an integration in practice. It will also include case studies of good practice farming, agro-forestry and agro-ecology systems. Finally, it will provide a forum to discuss how researchers, land managers and policy makers can help develop and support multi-functional agriculture and wider ecosystem services within a healthy and thriving rural economy.
Dr. Nadeem Shah will present Using woodland to reduce agricultural diffuse pollution in future farming systems (Theme 1, 1 March AM)
