Achieving Sustainable Agricultural Systems (ASSIST)

Lead Research Organisation: NERC Centre for Ecology and Hydrology
Department Name: Biodiversity (Wallingford)

Abstract

Feeding the rapidly growing global population in a sustainable way is one of the greatest challenges facing humanity. Addressing this will require a flexible mix of strategies, including minimising wasteful losses of food, reducing the amount of animal products in diets, together with increasing the productivity and efficiency of the existing farmed area whilst maintaining natural capital on which it and other ecosystem services depend. The latter concept of 'sustainable intensification' (SI) of agriculture is considered central to ensuring food security and a healthy environment for future generations. However, how best to achieve this is the subject of vigorous debate. Testing fully the concept of SI will require world-leading research into agro-ecosystems, which integrates environmental, agricultural and social sciences, and is applied across a range of scales. To support the research community in achieving this goal we will build a long-term (10 year+) national capability between BBSRC and NERC institutes, Rothamsted Research (RRes), Centre for Ecology and Hydrology (CEH) and British Geological Survey (BGS). This will require a critical and stable mass of expertise from a number of disciplines, together with capacity building by training and developing early career researchers. Only by bringing together expertise in management of natural resources (CEH, BGS) with that of crop production (RRes) will we be able to examine fully the impacts of intensification on the wider environment, and develop synergistic farming systems that contribute towards environmental sustainability.

The ASSIST programme - Achieving Sustainable Agricultural Systems - will develop innovative farming systems that maintain or increase productivity and resilience to future perturbations, while reducing the environmental and ecological footprint of agriculture. It will advance knowledge in five core areas: 1) identifying current and future biophysical limitations on crop productivity; 2) predicting the impacts of changes in agricultural management the wider environment, 3) understanding and enhancing the ecological processes underpinning food production; 4) developing innovative farming systems which minimise inputs while maximising yield, and build resilience to future environmental change; and 5) providing tools and data for planning future multi-functional land use that optimises benefits to food production whilst minimising trade-offs and conflicts with other ecosystem services.

SI is currently an area of considerable research investment. However, current initiatives are justifiably short-term and have a narrow focus on existing policies and practice (Defra), or on single components of the agro-ecosystem, such as soil processes (RCUK). While they form an invaluable starting point and provide detailed understanding of critical processes, we will complement and go beyond these initiatives through consideration of the longer-term (10 year+), large-scale effectiveness, impacts and robustness of novel mid- and far-horizon agricultural systems and technologies.

This national capability will provide the community with validated biophysical models and data at the field and national scale, a UK-wide research infrastructure using commercial farms, and tools to explore and synthesise the data generated. It will provide opportunities for new partnerships between the wider academic community and industry to address critical knowledge gaps, including the socio-economic barriers to uptake and implementation of these new farming systems, and the integration of advances in crop breeding. Together these activities will support the agricultural industry in assessing the potential to meet ambitious goals for environmental sustainability whilst remaining competitive in the global market.

PI Contribution This is a partnership project between Defra, Natural England and the Centre for Hydrology and Ecology, the purpose of which is to deliver key outputs for the Defra group from a platform of national capability (NC) investment in data and tools for mapping, measuring and predicting natural capital change. It will: • Allow the Defra group to secure additional outputs related to policy priorities and in particular develop specific policy and delivery applications; • Facilitate increased sharing of data, skills and facilities between CEH and the Defra group; • Facilitate multi-disciplinary partnership working; and • Support the retention of national capability. Policy and delivery applications include the integration of data products and models to deliver spatial products for practical applications, supporting statutory and international reporting obligations, evaluating policy and delivery interventions, and an improved understanding of the interactions in the natural world. In particular, Defra's aim is to secure policy applications linked to the 25 Year Environment Plan (25 YEP), EU Exit and to support decision making at a range of spatial scales, manage risks from climate change and other natural hazards and support local integrated delivery.
Collaborator Contribution Defra are providing CEH with access to Government data sets, policy insights and staff time of discipline experts to support the development of new environmental policies for the UK.

The marquee had a display of wild flowers and bees along with specially designed ASSIST posters, postcards and publicity. Many good conversations were had with farmers, media and the general public throughout the two days and the profile of the project was raised along with a number of expressions of interest for further involvement.

Results and Impact "A range of stakeholders were consulted to help produce a semi-quantitative assessment of the effectiveness, evidence base and feasibility of different agricultural management practices to identify the key farming solutions needed to achieve greater efficiency and sustainability.
Just over a hundred stakeholders comprising mostly farmers, agronomists, scientists and conservation practitioners were asked to complete a questionnaire and we received 38 full responses. Of these respondents, a selected, cross sectional group of 21 attended the follow-up workshop to review the findings of the questionnaire and identify key areas of consensus & conflict and potential areas for future development.

Results and Impact A range of stakeholders were consulted to help produce a semi-quantitative assessment of the effectiveness, evidence base and feasibility of different agricultural management practices to identify the key farming solutions needed to achieve greater efficiency and sustainability.
Just over a hundred stakeholders comprising mostly farmers, agronomists, scientists and conservation practitioners were asked to complete a questionnaire and we received 38 full responses. Of these respondents, a selected, cross sectional group of 21 attended the follow-up workshop to review the findings of the questionnaire and identify key areas of consensus & conflict and potential areas for future development. The workshop was hosted jointly between the ASSIST team and RSPB.
