Cultivating Soil Health Field Lab, Tuesday 7th November, Fife

Cultivating Soil Health Field Lab

Tuesday 7th November, Leven, Fife, 1.30-4pm

Interested in whether reduced tillage really works?

This field lab will look at one farmer’s experience of minimum till techniques including direct drilling into green manure cover crops and companion cropping methods, which could be applied on other farms.

Professor Christine Watson from SRUC will be joining us to talk more about how tillage, soil health and biology can impact on yield. 

Read our reports and notes on our previous Cultivating Soil Health field labs.

Booking is essential. Free of charge to farmers, growers and land managers and £40 + VAT to others. Book online.

Why not join us for another Field Lab the same day at a nearby farm from 10.30am-12.30pm looking into Controlling Leatherjackets, followed by a free lunch.

For more information call Jane on 0131 666 2474, or email.
