These practical, informative events with Jo Scamell (of Ground Level Nutrition) will examine why soil health is crucial for optimum production of crops and livestock. 

They'll give you all you need to know about how to influence soil health to provide higher yields and healthier stock, looking at - and beyond - its chemical and physical components. Bring your soil-related questions and make the most of this session's Q&A with an expert too.

Free of charge to farmers and land managers (£40.00 plus VAT to others). Booking is required so lunch and packs can be provided. For further information please call on Lyn 07899 791748 or email lwhite@soilassociation.org.

This event will be a great opportunity to deepen knowledge about soil and the impact it has on crops and livestock production. The day will include a short summary of key points on soil (as covered at our previous event), but will move on to focus on soil health, biology and the connection with animal nutrition and productivity. It should be a great way to build on what farmers already know and to dig into the detail of what good soil health can bring to their farms, stock and business.  Looking at the effect that cultivation has, which inputs help, and the interaction between plants and soil biology that make nutrients available; as well as taking a look at how best to use inputs like slurry FYM, slurry additives, forages grown and cultivations etc. for  optimum productivity.
