An opportunity to share your views on water efficiency and resilience in field vegetable cropping-----------------
Cranfield University are leading an international project with partners from South Africa, the UEA, Oxford and NIAB-EMR to identify ways to make the UK’s fresh fruit and vegetable system more resilient to water-related risks. They have mapped water scarcity ‘hotspots’ in the UK’s fresh fruit and vegetable supply (including imports and domestic produce), revealing the great advantage of consuming domestically grown produce in terms of reducing our national water scarcity footprint. This will have important implications for supporting access to water for irrigated production in Eastern England. Their research is now seeking to interview a small number of growers involved in potato and field vegetable production in the region to hear their views on how water management could be improved through adoption of new technologies or management practices and how strategies for increasing water efficiency are impacting on the resilience of their own farming business. If you are interested in learning more about the project or would be happy to participate in a short informal interview, please get in touch with Dr Chloe Sutcliffe at Any support for this will be much appreciated and will feed into the water strategy being developed for the Anglian region.
