Patrick White - Can we sustainably intensify dairy farms?

Sustainable intensification of agriculture is required to meet increasing global consumption while protecting the environment and preserving biodiversity. Collaborating with Scotland’s Rural College and Kew Botanic Gardens, my research is looking at the potential for sustainable intensification of dairy farming, a major global food producer. My results suggest that by modifying composition of cropping, it may be possible to increase production while increasing biodiversity components of two key indicator groups: vascular plants and epigeal spiders.
