Catchment Sensitive Farming and Innovation for Agriculture have teamed up to deliver a series of events across the country, focused on improving soil health.
Farm productivity is limited by poor soil health; the events will address what actions farmers can take to improve it, including:
Field capacity and drainage
Infiltration and hydraulic conductivity
Effects of soil cover on rainfall impact, run-off and groundwater
Capacity of soils to absorb different nutrients
Understanding the role of plants in preventing soil loss
The full range of events are advertised at http://smartagriplatform.com/future-and-past-events where you can also find booking details.
BGS is a membership organisation which acts as a communication forum, through events and publications, for the profitable and sustainable use of grass and forage.
