Environmental burdens of producing bread wheat, oilseed rape and potatoes in England and Wales using simulation and system modelling
Background, aims and scopeFood production is essential to life. Modern farming uses considerable resources to produce arable crops. Analysing the environmental burdens of alternative crop productionExpand
Causes of waste across multi-tier supply networks: Cases in the UK food sector
This research has investigated UK food supply networks to identify the dominant causes of food waste. The aim was to develop our understanding of environmental management across multi-tier networks,Expand
Do foods imported into the UK have a greater environmental impact than the same foods produced within the UK?
PurposeThis study of seven foods assessed whether there are modes or locations of production that require significantly fewer inputs, and hence cause less pollution, than others. For example, wouldExpand
Natural crusting of slurry storage as an abatement measure for ammonia emissions on dairy farms
Research on the incidence and effectiveness of natural crusting on slurry storage as a means of ammonia emission abatement was undertaken in studies at farm-scale, pilot-scale and on a small-scale.Expand
Scaling behavior of the quark propagator in full QCD
American Physical Society, One Research Road, Box 9000, Ridge, NY 11961-9000, USA(Dated: February 1, 2008)We study the scaling behavior of the quark propagator on two lattices with similar physicalExpand
Energy and environmental burdens of organic and non-organic agriculture and horticulture
Production of 10 major commodities in England and Wales was studied using Life Cycle Analysis (LCA). Organic and non-organic (contemporary conventional) systems were compared. Organic production wasExpand
Livestock and climate change: impact of livestock on climate and mitigation strategies
The objectives of this manuscript are to discuss the main greenhouse gas emissions sources from the livestock sector and summarize the best mitigation strategies aimed at reducing emissions of this sector. Expand
Environmental Benefits of Livestock Manure Management Practices and Technology by Life Cycle Assessment
Abstract An environmental Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) procedure is constructed to compare the total emissions from different techniques for managing livestock wastes. Life Cycle Assessment is aExpand
