NERC funds research on impact of farm land use on Thames flooding

Monday, November 13, 2017

NERC is to award £1.25m to a research project which will examine the extent to which farmers in the west Thames area can prevent fluvial flooding by choosing different crops, building soil organic matter and planting more trees.
