LOOK AFTER YOUR SOILS, YOUR WILDLIFE AND YOUR POCKET!

Farmers interested in remediating soils after a difficult year, saving money and enhancing the wildlife on their farms are being offered a series of free events across the region this summer.

  • Managing soils to improve yield, reduce compaction, promote soil nutrient uptake and improve field drainage.
  • Cross compliance and new NVZ regulations.
  • Incorporating agri-environment options into soil management and resource protection.
