Research Leader / LC
Soil and Water Research Unit
The mission of the Soil and Water Research Unit is to conduct research to develop sustainable production practices that maximize bio-energy production from sugarcane varieties most suited for biofuels in humid temperate and subtropical environments, while: Minimizing water use and negative impacts to the quality of drainage waters; maintaining soil fertility and maximizing soil carbon storage and/or carbon neutrality; and minimizing sediment and nutrient loss and potential erosion and/or subsidence of associated coastal ecosystems.
