The Innovation Fund: Encouraging new techniques for the future, today
Friday, 10 September 2010
The principle of the Innovation Fund is to provide pump priming cash for new and innovative ideas. These could include home grown ideas from within the farm or technologies not currently used in the English pig industry from another sector or overseas. The innovation fund may also provide funding to quantify a new process on farm which may provide efficiency and savings in labour. The guidance notes and application form have recently been updated and BPEX are calling for new applications to be submitted by Friday 10th September.

Overview: Aetiology, pathogenesis and immunology of porcine post-weaning multi-systemic wasting syndrome: genetic-environmental interactions
Wednesday, 10 March 2010
Aims of the project are to:

1. establish risk factors affecting severity of PMWS on farms
2. determine the cellular immune responses to the putative
microbial pathogens in vitro
3. establish an in vivo model of PMWS

Demonstration plots on manure nutrient value
Friday, 12 June 2009
Fertiliser inputs represent the biggest single cost component of cereal crop production, e.g. representing >60% of the variable costs of winter wheat. Manures can make a major contribution towards crop nutrient requirements and these plots set out to demonstrate how manures can be used as a reliable source of nitrogen (N), phosphate and potash.

PMWS in pigs: The Epidemiology of PMWS
Thursday, 3 July 2008
Since the submission of the original proposal in 2006, advances in research on PMWS in general, and on vaccine development in particular, have been made. Furthermore, the magnitude of the epidemic of PMWS in Great Britain has become even more apparent and clear differences in the effects of PMWS amongst British farms have been observed. However, the aetiology of this multi-factorial syndrome is still not understood in sufficient scientific detail, while it is difficult to predict the impact and success of the proposed programme of vaccination by the British Pig Executive (BPEX).
