British Grassland Society: Incoporating chicory into grassland ley

20 November 2012 10:00 - 20 November 2012 13:00

Venue: Hartbury College, Glos

This event is kindly being hosted by Hartpury College, Gloucestershire. These summer demonstration plots were established to introduce chicory into an existing ryegrass ley using a grass harrow machine. There will also be an opportunity to look at a newly reseeded ley and a ley that was over sown in 2011 to extend its life. The pros and cons of over-sowing grassland will be discussed as well as the costs and benefits. The benefits of incorporating chicory into a grazing ley will also be discussed for both cattle and sheep farms.

This event is FREE to attend.  Lunch is provided. For more details or to register to attend please contact Briony Burge on 01363 776162 or briony.burge@creedyassociates.com

In conjunction with British Grassland Society and Creedy Associates

This is how the Victorians managed to produce pineapples in their walled gardens. However, there seems to be a renewed interest in harnessing this waste energy.
