The North Wyke Farm Platform- National Capability

Lead Research Organisation: Rothamsted Research
Department Name: Unlisted

Abstract

The North Wyke Farm Platform (NWFP) was established in 2010 as a National Capability for collaborative research, training and knowledge exchange in agri-environmental sciences. It is a globvally unique, system-based facility that develops solutions for future resilient grazing-livestock systems and associated food chains In April 2011, a system based on permanent pasture was implemented on three 21-ha farmlets to obtain baseline data on hydrology, nutrient cycling and productivity. From July 2013, two farmlets were progressively modified by either: (i) planned reseeding with innovative grasses or (ii) sowing grass and white clover mixtures to reduce nitrogen fertilizer inputs. This modification ended in July 2015 - thus the post-baseline period started. Data generated by the platform is freely available via a Data Portal. As of June 2017, 72 additional experiments and projects have been conducted on the platform. High impact projects include the industry and AHDB backed SUREROOT project. From April 2017, core measurements continue, but there is an increased focus on atmospheric emissions. All core platform data collections from 2017 will coherently dovetail with collections required for the S2N and ASSIST strategic programmes (ISPG) and any external strategic programmes that use the platform. The main ISPG driven collections are: (i) Farm data - enhance forage quality data and collections for sustainability metrics; (ii) Soils data - enhance soil surveys to supplement GHG data at a finer spatial resolution and soil physics for model inputs; (iii) Water data - increase spot sampling and lab. analyses, and add biological indicators; and (iv) Gases data - introduce Eddy Covariance, Boreal laser and GreenFeed greenhouse gas measurements. Data analytics will also evolve with enhanced data quality control.

Description The NWFP hypotheses are given here: http://resources.rothamsted.ac.uk/north-wyke-farm-platform/overview-hypotheses, where the core remit of the platform is the comparison of treatments using a farm systems approach. The core hypothesis reflects this via the calculation of "sustainability metrics" that can accurately predict the long-term performance of each treatment - economically, environmentally and socially. Metrics are directly calculated from the platform's fine resolution data collections; and are carefully chosen to be transferrable to other farming systems, across the UK and the world. In this way, outputs from the platform directly influence sustainable land use both nationally and internationally. Given the NWFP is a research facility, most key findings stem from projects that use it (see narrative impact for projects) and the open (core) data the NWFP collects and releases. Examples of key finding include:

A first example (via the S2N ISP), relates to a new Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) of carbon foot-printing for pasture-based cattle production systems that can assess the impacts of individual animals. The study shows that the implications of livestock farming on climate change should not be drawn from aggregate statistics and that a small number of 'weakest link' animals are responsible for a disproportionally large amount of environmental burdens (McAuliffe et al. 2018 DOI: 10.1016/j.jclepro.2017.10.113). The study demonstrates clear value of core data being collected by the NWFP and its vital role within the current 'Carbon-Net-Zero' debate, especially surrounding grazing livestock. This work has led to a re-evaluation of the current IPCC CO2 eq/kg product metric for defining global warming potential, with more emphasis on nutritional value and disaggregation of GHGs.

A second example concerns a DEFRA-funded programme to assess the reliability of methods for estimating soil loss from different land uses. DEFRA had previously spent ~£1million on a national survey of soil erosion based on the use of fallout radiocaesium (137Cs) inventories to estimate soil loss rates. In the programme, independent evidence was assembled for grassland soil loss for >70 sites, including the NWFP using its fine-resolution water turbidity data. Comparisons between the 137Cs data and sediment yield-based approaches (as done with NWFP data) by soil type revealed a significant issue with the 137Cs surveys with soil loss rates over-estimated (Evans et al. 2017 DOI: 10.1016/j.earscirev.2017.08.005). Outputs have resulted in 137Cs surveys not being used by government. Findings are important internationally, since the International Atomic Energy Agency promotes the use of 137Cs approaches but the study findings showed such approaches to be unreliable, leading to incorrect management decisions.

In addition, a suite of technical and research case studies can be sourced from the NWFP website (http://resources.rothamsted.ac.uk/north-wyke-farm-platform-national-capability/case-studies) together with all NWFP publications: http://resources.rothamsted.ac.uk/north-wyke-farm-platform/publications.
Exploitation Route For given example 1, above: mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions originating from ruminants could be easier than traditionally thought-if we are able to select the right animals through the right screening methods.

For given example 2, above: the reliable estimation of soil loss from agriculture is of huge importance at any scale. And as indicated, already taken up by Government.

Description Knowledge exchange and commercialisation: The following 19 Collaborations, Partnerships and Research Projects have used or continue to use the NWFP facility or data in some manner: (1) studies on deep rooting grasses as a component of the BBSRC-LINK SUREROOT project (including industry partners - Germinal Seeds, Waitrose, Stonegate Farmers and more, the British Grassland Society, AHDB and IBERS National Plant Phenomics Centre - another NC) (BBSRC link; 2012-19); (2) Sustainable Intensification Research Platform (SIP 1 and 2 - DEFRA 2014-2017) where NWFP data was used to define temperate low-grassland systems; (3) CIEL Agri-Tech centre where North Wyke represents its grazing research centre of excellence in ruminants (Innovate UK; 2015-20), (4) industry consultancy via the 'Silage Solutions' project (2015-20), (5) industry-led Alltech project investigating minerals on farm and silage quality (2016-21); (6) improving Nitrogen agronomy through the UK China CINAG project (BSSRC/NERC Newton fund; 2016-18); (7) INIA (Uruguay) partnering award for development of agricultural sustainability metrics (BBSRC 2016-19), (8) ASSIST ISP (BBSRC/NERC; 2016-2022); (9) SME-led projects based out of the Environment Futures and Big Data Impact Lab, (e.g. water harvesting with OT Analytics, remote sensing of soil moisture with Pixalytics, IoT soil and water sensing with Redpill) (ERDF 2017-21); (10) on-farm antimicrobial resistance project (NERC; 2017-2019); (11) S2N ISP (BBSRC; 2017-2022); (12) CIEL and John Deere forage harvester project with NIR sensing for grass yield (Innovate UK; 2018); (13) CIEL and the University of Bristol rumen e-boluses project for livestock welfare (Innovate UK; 2018); (14) data integration project for the four UK Agri-Tech centres (Innovate UK; 2018); (15) monitoring soil carbon project with Duchy College, University of Plymouth and Cornish SMEs (ERDF Cornwall; 2018-21) - whose outputs will link to the Kunsat work for practical field survey designs; (16) visualization of agricultural field performance through low-cost modelling (VizAg) with SME GlasData (ERDF Cornwall; 2018-20); (17) multi-species sward (TOMS) project with Duchy College and Cornish SMEs (ERDF Cornwall; 2018-20) - which links to an EU H2020 project (IWMPAISE) on weed ecology and also the 'Silage Solutions' project, above; (18) Global Farm Platform Networks Capacity (NLGCA 2019-21); and finally (19) the National GrassCheckGB project comprising 50 livestock farms for intensive 'crowd-sourced' data collection (2019-21). Under this final initiative we aim to further the outputs of the NWFP to the farming community. Detailed soil and forage quality data are collected, which when analysed in combination with NWFP data (acting as one of the 50 farms), a forecast of forage growth for the following week is possible using an ensemble of farm-scale models. Forecasts are published as a weekly article in the Farmers Guardian newspaper every Friday to help commercial farmers' decision making, often with commentary based on scientific findings from S2N and the NWFP. This makes research relatable to commercial farmers by an effective use of their peers' information. It should also be stressed that the data product freely provided by the NWFP benefits strongly by user-feedback from all collaborations and projects, and this feedback is encouraged. The wider benefits of the NWFP are also shown through specific reporting indicators where for the first 7-years of existence, 70% of registered users of the online data portal are from academic institutions while 30% are outside of academia; and 58% of FP experiments were conducted solely through RRes staff, while 42% were conducted with at least one external collaborator. The NWFP has been represented at 32 research-focused events and 8 industry-focussed events, many of which have been held at North Wyke. Notable events include attendance at 'Grassland and Muck', Stoneleigh 2017 and the BBSRC Innovation Hub at the Oxford Farming Conferences in 2019 and 2020 where the latest NWFP research outputs were exhibited. There have been over 90 visits to the NWFP, including visits by HRH Princess Royal and by Mel Stride MP (Leader of the House of Commons). All of which have helped raise the profile of the NWFP experiment. Engagement with local farmer networks is possible via the Research Advisory Group, but also a new farmer network that has been established in the Upper Taw observatory, the catchment area for the NWFP, via work from S2N. This latter network ensures engagement with key sectors and potentially the inclusion of up-to-date on-farm data as input to the Hierarchical Modelling Framework that is being developed within S2N. Our unique knowledge in the setting up and running of the platform has allowed us to guide others in best practise for platform design, data management and data QC. In this respect, we have hosted and delivered seminars to delegations from Bristol Veterinary School (University of Bristol), the University of Leeds, Agrimetrics, the Ecological Continuity Trust, the Agri-Food and Biosciences Institute (Ulster University), Scotland's Rural University College, University College Dublin (Ireland), Teagasc (Ireland), Chinese Academy of Sciences, Chinese Agricultural University and Embrapa (Sao Paolo, Brazil) - some of which are fellow Global Farm Platform (GFP) partners. Furthermore, we have shared our expertise through two linked webinars to groups from USDA/LTAR in the US and have given invited presentations at a soils workshop in Upsalla, Sweden and a water quality monitoring workshop in Cork, Ireland. Increasingly, the NWFP is transitioning to a technology-driven monitoring platform embracing advances in Data Science (AI methodologies), Sensor Engineering, Sensor/data Communication via Internet of Things (IoT) and application development for Decision Support Tools (DSTs). Links to Data Science have been established through the Environment Futures and Big Data Impact Lab led by Exeter University (with RRes, University of Plymouth, Plymouth Marine Lab, Exeter City Futures and Plymouth College of Art as partners), AI workshops (e.g. BBSRC AI in Biology, Norwich, Jean Goulding Institute and Turing Institute workshops) and Open Data workshops (e.g. ESA, Stoke Climsand and Jumpstart Agri-Tech, Penryn). Links to Sensor Engineering have been established through UCL (primarily via the cattle-based sensors used in S2N) and Exeter University (where an on-going FP experiment has co-located low-cost EC towers with those on the NWFP). IoT links exist through industry-led projects using narrowband (5G) and LoRaWan technologies. A mobile app DST is due for release to commercial farmers which consists of a scaled-down agri-model that has been developed by the ERDF Cornwall VizAg project and which uses NWFP data for model validation. Many FP experiments and projects described have a drone and/or satellite remote sensing component. Through the ERDF Cornwall monitoring soil carbon project, collaborative links have also been established with the agricultural robotics group at the University of Plymouth. This Digital Transformation of the NWFP is on-going and should not be done in isolation and needs to be similarly extended to the wider network of farm platforms for landscape decisions and through each node of the food supply chain for blockchain solutions. Such 'big picture' extensions are recognised in projects and project proposals. Contribution to training and skills development: The NWFP has contributed to the development of grassland research skills for 8 students (bachelors/masters level projects - does not include solely visits), 13 visiting researchers, 12 post-doctoral researchers (funded on RRes projects) and 8 PhD studentships. Visiting researchers included 3 with International Fellowships to study: 'Housed GHGs using the GreenFeed system' (RRes funded, 2017-18), 'Biochar from animal waste and impacts on soil fertility' (RRes funded, 2017-18) and 'Relationships between pasture species, soil characteristics and management inputs' (OECD funded, 2018). PhD awards were commonly provided through Bristol, Exeter or Lancaster Universities. Depending on the level of existing experience, the research skills gained include those in measurement and lab analysis, field survey techniques, water flume spot sampling, data curation, statistical design and analysis, modelling, scientific writing, scientific presentation and public engagement. Fundamental to the continued and efficient operation of the NWFP are the collective skillsets of the funded staff. Skillsets include those in (livestock and arable) farm management, agronomy, ecology, biodiversity, soil geochemistry, water instrumentation, GHG instrumentation, lab analysis, data curation, data management, data analysis, sample design and remote sensing. All NWFP staff are trained in subjects outside of the core expertise so that they can perform multiple roles to minimise single-point dependencies and promote team harmony. There are many 'Data Science' synergies with S2N, where NWFP staff provide sensor and data science expertise to help: (A) devise protocols for the continuous tracking of animal movement on the platform in order to create risk maps for nutrient losses to air and water, (B) provide protocols for field survey measurements, such grass sward height, (C) provide a harmonised QC of the NWFP data with data from the new observatory in the upper River Taw catchment which facilitates a continuum of research from the laboratory to the NWFP to its immediate landscape, and (D) facilitate the calculation of nutrient budgets for each platform system through empirical and modelled outputs with an eventual aim of automating this task through optimised space-time sample designs that both calibrate and validate the models used. Enabling excellent research Internationally: The NWFP is a large-scale research facility to study the complete flow of nutrients from soil to food, with the clear and distinct aim of making farming a more sustainable endeavour. It's internationally unique design allows research outputs to be immediately relevant to real-world food producers. The facility continues to be used by national and international collaborators from a wide spectrum of scientific disciplines, with a particularly strong capability to accommodate studies on pasture-based livestock production systems and optimal land use. The NWFP is represented in UKRI's recent infrastructure roadmaps and is recognised by the UN Food and Agriculture Organisation as an exemplar research facility. We are a founding member of the GFP (https://globalfarmplatform.org/) which consists of 22 partners with 14 farm platforms. Our unique agri-informatics expertise has led to the identification of core data collections across the GFP network for the coherent derivations of a globally-relevant set of sustainability metrics. Since 2017, we have engaged actively with the Media, where in chronological order: (i) Dr Taro Takahashi featured in the Ecologist to discuss the 'benefits and dis-benefits of intensive farming'; (ii) Dr Taro Takahashi featured in the Guardian also to discuss the 'benefits and dis-benefits of intensive farming'; (iii) Professor Michael Lee took part in a BBC Newshour Extra debate live on Radio 4 on the 'role of meat in our diet for planetary and human health'; (iv) Dr Graham Mcauliffe, Dr Taro Takahashi and Professor Michael Lee were interviewed on BBC's Farming Today (Radio 4) for the press release of the LCA work of McAuliffe et al. 2018 DOI: 10.1016/j.jclepro.2017.10.113 (see above); (v) Dr Taro Takahashi appeared on BBC Breakfast presenting the new arable system on the NWFP; (vi) Professor Tom Misselbrook appeared on BBC's Farming Today (Radio 4) to discuss GHG assessment on the NWFP; (vii) Professor Tom Misselbrook appeared on BBC Spotlight News to again discuss GHG assessment on the NWFP; (viii) Professor Michael Lee appeared on Sky News, Aljazeera News and BBC Spotlight during the launch of the Small Ruminant Facility to discuss its potential to assess the role of livestock in food security; (ix) Dr Taro Takahashi appeared on BBC Points West and BBC 6 O'clock National News on the 'unintended economic consequences of veganism'; and (x) Professor Michael Lee featured research from the NWFP on a Channel 4 documentary programme 'Meat the Family'.

PI Contribution The aims of this project are: • To develop a multi-disciplinary, international network of researchers with expertise in livestock production systems in West Africa and the UK, in combination with indigenous cattle and crop farmers, social scientists and other stakeholders. • To understand the opportunities for developing improved pasture and controlled grazing systems in West Africa to reduce arable farmer/nomadic pastoralist conflicts whilst improving the productivity and sustainability of livestock systems. • Develop a consortium of agricultural and social researchers and stakeholders to generate novel and innovative research ideas suitable for applications to future GCRF funding initiatives Methodology: We will hold two workshops that will bring together researchers from the Cape Coast University, Ghana, and Rothamsted Research, UK with social scientists and stakeholders from West Africa. These will identify a core team of experts that will work together to initiate a larger GCRF grant application for research into the practicalities and potential benefits of introducing improved pasture and controlled grazing systems in West Africa. The first workshop will be held in Ghana at Cape Coast University and will focus on reviewing the current barriers and challenges facing livestock production systems in West Africa and the opportunities for introducing controlled grazing systems in the region, along with opportunities to develop a controlled grazing demonstration network of farms In West Africa. A second workshop will be held in the UK which six key stakeholders from West Africa will attend, where controlled grazing systems will be showcased, and projects for GCRF proposals finalised.
Collaborator Contribution Cape Coast hosted our first meeting in February 2020, providing facilities and organising field trips and the attendance of other collaborators.
Impact Already further project proposals have been submitted and more drafted, in order that further work/collaboration can take place.

PI Contribution The Ecological Continuity Trust (ECT) is a charity that is developing a strategic network of long-term ecological experiments (LTEs) under different habitats in order to safeguard existing high quality experiments and data, and are helping to ensure that new facilities are planned for the long-term.The NWFP has been added to the ECT register of LTEs, of which there are currently 30 active experiments at 27 sites in the United Kingdom. The NWFP is listed as one of the ECT's grassland habitat sites and is using a systems-based approach to study the complete flow of nutrients from soil to food products with a view to understanding and developing sustainable ways of managing lowland grass-based livestock production. Due to its highly instrumented set-up and high detail of data recording, it is a valuable source of knowledge on the ecosystem services provided by this type of landscape. In particular, the NWFP can make comparisons between land that is continually managed as permanent pasture compared with non-permanent pasture systems and is able to provide long-term data-sets on the effects of land management on hydrology, water quality, greenhouse gas emissions, soil quality, animal health, meat quality, and biodiversity.
Collaborator Contribution The ECT has established a network of key stakeholders that help champion the need to secure long-term experiments and the valuable science they produce so that future generations have the resources needed to manage systems in the face of environmental change. In addition, grants of up to £3000 are available (supported by the British Ecological Society) to help to fund research projects both within and between ECT registered sites, help to cover travel costs associated with communicating scientific findings and to help provide funds for essential maintenance or data curation activities.

PI Contribution Background and scientific objectives The overall objective of this project is to develop collaborations and share knowledge between two world renowned research institutes with expertise in grassland/livestock research. Grasslands occupy over 40% of the global biosphere1 and contribute significantly to the global production of milk and meat, and thus are a vital factor in global food security. Pasture occupies 61% of the UK's agricultural land2. In Uruguay, the total area of grazed grassland amounts to 12.7 million hectares, representing 78% of Uruguay's agricultural land3. Both countries have similarities in their grassland-based animal production, whilst climate conditions offer a gradient that is pertinent for common discussion of methodological approaches, scientific advances and knowledge gaps.
Collaborator Contribution Through a partnership between Rothamsted Research (RRes) in the UK and the Instituto National de Investigacion Agropecuaria (INIA) in Uruguay, we aim to develop farm and environmental metrics using long-term data from two grassland livestock experimental platforms with comparable climate but contrasting geographies and soil types by: • Promoting scientific exchange of knowledge and best practice through reciprocal visits and workshops involving research staff; • Promoting training through reciprocal visits and workshops involving students and early-career researchers; • Pooling resources and capacities through sharing of experimental and field facilities.

Palhares (Embrapa Southeast Livestock); Dr Marilia Follegati (Embrapa Southeast Livestock). Project Start date: June 2018 Duration: 6 months Project Summary Research into the efficiency of ruminant livestock production systems around the world is a key focus of food security research. Research has focused on their environmental impact, the nutritional quality of food they produce and the potential benefit of utilising poor land (not suitable for arable production), by-products and nutrient recycling in mixed crop-livestock systems. Two of the leading research institutes in this research area are Embrapa (Brazil) and Rothamsted Research (UK), both of whom have some of the most advanced facilities to investigate the impact and efficiency of ruminant livestock production systems relevant to Brazil and the UK, namely the Grazing Beef Cattle Production Systems Platform in Sao Carlos and the North Wyke Farm Platform (NWFP) in Devon, respectively. This proposal is for funds to enable an initial exchange of scientists from both countries to learn about the different types of production systems, the research being carried out on them, the types and frequency of data available from them, opportunities for co-working and ultimately alignment of the datasets required to facilitate comparison of them via co-publication of comprehensive nutrient use efficiency, animal performance, product quality, animal welfare and life cycle assessments. There are many similarities between the two research facilities, with some of the most advanced technologies for this type of research being employed (e.g. greenhouse gas emissions (including Greenfeed systems), faecal and urine deposition tracking, breeding programmes, soil quality analyses, etc.). There is a strong case for the Sao Carlos research facility to be included in the Global Farm Platform (an FAO recognised initiative involving 14 research farms around the globe of which NWFP is a founding member), and through the proposed exchanges this will also be facilitated. Embrapa colleagues visited Rothamsted Research North Wyke and Harpenden in June 2018, and reciprocal visit was made by the Rothamsted participants to Embrapa Sao Carlos in December 2018.
Collaborator Contribution Embrapa colleagues provided their time and expertise to discuss collaborations and co-develop proposals.
Impact This collaboration has resulted in Embrapa officially joining the Global Farm Platform Network.

Organisation Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation
Country Australia 
Sector Public 
PI Contribution The main activity by Rothamsted Researchers (Dr Tegan darch) is to visit CSIRO in Canberra and co-develop and carry-out experiments on mixed swards and other pasture treatments. A reciprocal visit will take place in summer 2020 when Rebecca Stutz will visit Rothamsted Research's North Wyke Farm Platform. Dr Darch will be exposed to the broad range of activities in the pastures, cropping and soils groups while also undertaking specific experimental work to transfer skills and methodologies for assessing nutrient-use efficiency in mixed pasture swards. Specifically: • Visits to key experiment field sites that showcase CSIRO's forage research (including forage options to fill summer feed gaps, novel legumes with reduced reliance on P fertiliser, understanding the scope of soil S deficiency on pasture productivity). • Visit to the new Boorowa Agricultural Research Station and discussions regarding whole-farm mapping and digital integration. • Discussions with CSIRO scientists on the topics of pasture, cropping systems, and soils, and on current research work and emerging challenges. Discussions with CSIRO collaborators, particularly scientists in the NSW Department of Primary Industries and Farmer Groups, with whom CSIRO conducts much of its applied research on farms. • Controlled-environment experimentation to assess how root and shoot competition in pasture swards affects P acquisition efficiency. Transfer of skills in root assessment . • Review areas for potential future collaboration/ joint projects.
Collaborator Contribution Dr Rebecca Stutz will be hosted by Dr Tegan Darch and Dr Martin Blackwell at Rothamsted Research, North Wyke in summer 2020. Activities will allow Dr Stutz to gain an understanding of the facilities and current research activity at North Wyke and in the wider UK climate, while undertaking experimental work to gain skills in measuring micro-nutrients in forages. • Experience the North Wyke Farm Platform to see management, instrumentation, and data analysis from the Farm Platform. Dr Stutz will meet other researchers involved with the Farm Platform, including those doing life-cycle and economic modelling of the systems and will bring learnings knowledge back to inform CSIRO's development of the Boorowa Digitally-Integrated Farm Management System. • Visit field experiments/ controlled environment experiments. For example, a plot-scale experiment looking at different sward establishment methods, species richness, and seeding rate of multispecies swards; a pot trial looking at micronutrient uptake of monoculture and mixed sward pasture species; and field trials investigating 'controlled rotational grazing' relative to less intensive grazing. There will also be the opportunity to visit other facilities on site, such as the new Small Ruminant Facility, which will house highly-controlled and monitored sheep trials, and can be used, for example, for feeding trials of different herbage mixtures and where all excreta can be collected and analysed for nutrient content. • Experimentation to quantify the spatial variability of soil macro- and micro-nutrients, and the variability of herbage concentrations of those nutrients in the overlying herbage. • Review areas for potential future collaboration/ joint projects. • Rebecca will be invited to give a presentation to SAS-NW, maximising the benefit of the exchange and future collaborative opportunities, by ensure that the group are fully aware of the skills and research interests of CSIROs Productive forages team.
