A webinar exploring practical farmer led research into catchment sensitive farming techniques and how this is benefiting farm businesses as well as soil health and local rivers.
What are the benefits of introducing cover crops and no-till soil management techniques onto your farm? With the support of companies like Affinity Water and Thames Water, farmers and researchers across the country are working together to investigate how these practices can build soil health, reduce their inputs and improve the water quality of their local rivers. Join this virtual Groundswell discussion to hear farmers share their experience and practical knowledge of catchment sensitive farming and get the latest data on how these practices are benefiting their land and rivers.
