Cracking Clays....

Yesterday was the steering group meeting for Defra's 'Cracking Clays' project WQ0118, involving ADAS, North Wyke Research and a modest slice of myself from Lancaster University. It is worth mentioning this project because it provides a substantive platform for studying the effects of - well - cracking clays - on water quality, in view of pressure to return manaure to land in line with NVZ guidelines. A full and quality first 12 month data set was shown for N, P and FIOs and for more information I urge you to contact main players Brian Chambers at ADAS or David Chadwick at North Wyke Research. Photos of the field excursion on Rowden can also be viewed here. Phil
