MOPS1 and MOPS2 are two collaborative research projects, funded by the UK Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra), involving four project  partners, Lancaster University, ADAS, the University of Reading and The Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust Allerton Project.

MOPS 1 (2005-2008) focused on in-field mitigation options for winter cereals. The final report is available here. Much of the project information is also available in our publications.

MOPS2 (2008-2013) focused on two further areas of diffuse pollution mitigation:

  1. Edge-of-field constructed wetlands.
    For more information please explore this website, which contains project information and outputs. The final report will be available later in 2014.
  2. In-field losses from spring-sown crops (e.g. potatoes).
    For more information contact Martyn Silgram.

Guidance on creating field wetlands is now available here.
