Cultivating soil health field lab

Cultivating soil health meeting

Thursday 24th November, Perthshire

Interested in whether reduced tillage really works? Come along to find out how we have been getting on with this field lab about cultivating soil health, trying out different organic methods of weed control like the use of black plastic, and exploring the impact on soil health.

It’ll be a great chance to see what’s really worked, and to find out more about how tillage, soil health and biology can impact yield. Read our reports and notes so far, and be sure to join us for the meeting itself: free of charge to farmers and land managers (£40.00 plus VAT to others).

Booking is essential as places will go quickly - download a booking form and send to dmichie@soilassociation.org to reserve your place.
