Biography

My interests range between all aspects of grass and grassland agronomy; from agricultural production of grass for livestock production; through grasses for soil stabilisation on engineered sites; to the provision of grass playing surfaces for sports and leisure activities.

I am also interested in the potential future role of grassland for the provision of harvestable material that can be used for renewable energy production and bioprocessing.
