How healthy is your soil?

  • Farm productivity is limited by poor soil health
    • What can we as farmers do to improve it?

An interactive workshop with Stephen Briggs (farmer and Nuffield Scholar) from IfA to discuss how to increase soil health for sustainable production

Stephen will be joined by Nim Kibbler who will be providing practical demonstrations exploring soil and water relationships touching on:

  • Field capacity and drainage
  • Infiltration and hydraulic conductivity
  • Effects of soil cover on rainfall impact, run-off and groundwater
  • Capacity of soils to absorb different nutrients
  • Understanding the role of plants in preventing soil loss

Plus, 1:1 on-farm expert advice and grants information from Marian Wilby (01423 712950/07713 333187)
