Adrian is an agroecologist and barley / cereal pathologist with over 40 years of research experience. Initially his interests were in cereal pathogen populations and their response to cereal crop variety deployment. Deployment of diversity within cereal crops, referred to as cereal variety mixtures or blends, became a major interest in terms of disease control and resource use efficiency as measured by yield and quality outcomes. His recent focus has been on broader plant diversity interactions in the field from genotypes to species including intercropping, and variety/genotype interactions with soil tillage and crop sequence. Another parallel research interest has been induced resistance, whether through pathogens or application of resistance elicitors including the induction mediated by soil microbial communities in soils differentially affected by cultivation and previous crops. These interests feed into current work in the broad area of regenerative agriculture including pasture diversity. The work on cereal cultivar mixtures or blends and resistance elicitors in crop protection are summarised in these linked pages.

Current research interests

Adrian’s research interests in cereal pathogens continue in the context of crop diversity, taking a more ecological focus working with Hutton colleagues and others, and encompass intercropping, especially cereal-legume combinations for both biomass (wholecrop) and grain. His IPM interests include soil cultivation, particularly the effects of non-inversion versus inversion tillage. The particular approach of direct drilling or conservation tillage and it’s farming systems context are another current area of interest.  

                Adrian is a key member of the Integrated Pest and Disease Management (IPM) [ipm@hutton: ipm.hutton.ac.uk]  research group at the Institute. He has been an honourary Professor of Cereal Pathology at SRUC, Edinburgh; an editor of Agronomy and previously for Plant Pathology and CABI Bioscience and Agriculture; a member of the Association for Crop Protection in Northern Britain Standing Committee and Programme Committee; was a member of HGCA Barley, Oats and Other cereals Recommended List Committee; a member of Scottish Variety Consultative Committee (Cereals); was a member of the International Committee for the International Workshop on Barley Leaf Diseases; and a member of the Scottish Society for Crop Research - Combinable and Energy Crops Committee.
