Work to underpin England's Paludiculture Roadmap

Updated: Feb 23

NIAB are leading a quick scoping project for Defra.

We have two separate questions to address:

  • What are (and could be if crop area expands/ as a result of climate change) the main pest, disease and weed challenges for the most likely UK paludiculture crops (reed, typha, sphagnum, ….)

  • Are there food/feed crops that should be prioritised for agronomy/breeding development for paludiculture systems in the UK

If you have any quick thoughts on these questions, then please get in touch via


As part of the project, we are also arranging two short on-line workshops on Tuesday March 5th. We would welcome participation in one / both – as well as recommendations of others that we should invite.

Click on the links below to register your interest. The registration page will open in a new tab. The workshops are separate events and you will need to register for them both if planning on contributing to both sessions.
