British Grassland Society Nutrient Wise Demo Programme

18 October 2012 10:00 - 18 October 2012 13:00

Venue: Duchy College, Cornwall

This event is kindly being hosted by Duchy College, Cornwall. The aim of this half day workshop is to look at getting the basic soil chemistry correct to encourage grass growth with an emphasis on grassland liming. The event will look at the demonstration sites that were set up in summer 2012 looking at 4 different liming products. There will be discussions on the pros and cons of different liming products as well as how to work out how much product to apply and which is the most cost effective.

 

This event is run in conjunction with the British Grassland Society and Creedy Associates. It is free to attend. For more details or to register to attend please contact Briony Burge on 01363 776162 or email bryony.burge@creddyassociates.com

Marianne Landzettel: ‘Give me five more minutes’ signals Gualu Goud as he’s standing on top of one of his five compost heaps working the top layer with a hoe. I met Gualu earlier this month in a village in the eastern Indian state of Odisha (formerly Orissa). He’s been a cotton farmer for most of his life. Things were ok until about 10 years ago when yields started to drop even though he used increasing amounts of expensive chemical fertilisers.
