My project aims to identify optimal grazing management and advance best practice in communicating complex science on soil health and sustainability. Engaging with livestock farmers to co-design principles minimising livestock grazing impacts on ecosystem sustainability, will be developed as an exemplar of sensitive natural resource management whilst maintaining food production and responding to the biodiversity loss and climate change emergencies.
