        Brief Introduction of the Reporter:
        Dave Chadwick is the Professor in Sustainable Land Use Systems in the School of Environment, Natural Resources and Geography (SENRGY) at Bangor University. His interests are in the management of livestock manures and other organic resources to optimise nutrient utilisation whilst minimising impacts on water and air quality. This includes; quantifying and mitigating greenhouse gas emissions, reducing the risk of transfers of pollutants to watercourses, and understanding the secondary impacts of mitigating diffuse agricultural pollution. He currently leads the Defra/Devolved Administrations funded consortium project to Improve the UK Agricultural Nitrous Oxide Inventory (InveN2Ory project), one of three projects delivering to the UK GHG Platform (
        As well as publishing refereed scientific papers (see below), he also contributes to policy and practice, including:
        • Co-authorship of two Chapters in the 8th Edition of the Fertiliser Manual (RB209) - Organic Manures and Grassland Fertiliser Recommendations (
        • Contribution to the User Guide-ALL – an inventory of methods and their effects on diffuse pollutants from agriculture (
        • Policy and Practice note on reducing the risk of FIO rransfers to water
        • Policy brief on improving manure nutrient management practices in China towards sustainable Intensification in China (
