Research interests

I am interested in understanding how plants integrate and respond to different environmental conditions such as nutrient availability and the presence of neighbour (e.g. blackgrass). My research aims to provide useful information for the development of crop varieties that can produce high yield with lower herbicide and fertiliser inputs.

Emma leads the Crop Transformation Group at NIAB and is responsible for the development and progression of both academic research projects and contract services for external customers. Our main focus is the transformation of wheat, where we have expanded the range of germplasm which can be utilised to include UK elite varieties and durum wheats.

Dr Elizabeth Stockdale

Elizabeth has over 25 years applied soil and nutrient management research experience and has engaged with a wide range of research projects connected with the study of nutrient cycling in soils and with the environmental impact of farming systems. At the smallest scale she has applied isotope dilution techniques to investigate mineralisation, immobilisation and nitrification processes. Most recently she has been very active in developing farmer-focussed approaches to measurement of soil health and developing on-farm toolkits for improved soil management.
