Abstract

Our specific aims are to: 1. Bring together some of the UK and Brazil's top ranked institutes and leading researchers. 2. To deploy specific work packages (WP) that address important research gaps in our understanding to improve NUE and priorities for Brazil including WP1: Use of Sensor Technologies to Improve NUE in Crop Production; WP2: Linking the Impacts of Soil Physical Condition and N Cycling on Plant Growth; WP3: Manipulating Plant Root Systems for Improved NUE; WP4: Enhancing NUE through applications of Soil Amendments; WP5: Increasing Agronomic NUE in flooded and rain-fed rice production. 3. A sixth and overarching WP focused on Capacity Building, Training and an Outreach Programme ensuring we maximise the impact of our research, meet the ODA requirements and ensure the legacy of the project. 4. Complementary field and laboratory experiments in both UK and Brazil (including equipment sharing). 5. To focus not solely on a single crop but on a diverse range of cropping systems, both in commercial and subsistence agriculture. 6. A strong focus on capacity building, engagement and support of Early Career Scientists in partner institutes - through exchange, joint-supervision, training activities and collaborative research. 7. To hold a series of workshops, training activities and other dissemination events over the duration of the project, ensuring the maximum possible impact for the research. 8. To undertake cutting edge research that can also be used to inform policy and practice on the ground. This challenge will be met by feeding directly into existing and new links to agronomic extension and policymaker networks. 9. To develop a roadmap for future collaborative activities focused on novel solutions for enhancing NUE through management of agronomic systems beyond the life of the initial funded project thus ensuring its legacy.
