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

The proposed regulation from the European Commission wanted to simplify the existing confused and cumbersome laws, as well as provide a platform to increase exports to outside the EU and safeguard human health. But this proposal would have further sustained the dominance of the big seed companies (like Monsanto, DuPont and Syngenta) and drastically reduced the number of seed varieties available for growing. The Soil Association, along with many others campaigned against these proposals.
