|Modern triticale crops for increased yields, reduced inputs, increased profitability and reduced greenhouse gas emissions from UK cereal production|
Environment / CP3699 / Published: 21 January 2013
The aim of this HGCA-funded project is to add value through improving the underlying science and understanding of the questions relevant to arable growers, and by providing additional communication with growers and other stakeholders through the normal HGCA KT mechanisms.
|Bioenergy from wheat straw|
Environment / CP3741 / Published: 21 January 2013
