Update from Colchester Monitor Farm
Update from Colchester Monitor Farm:
- Extremes of weather are increasingly determining farm management policies
- 715mm rain in 2014
- Continuing to explore use of cover crops, such as vetch and oats, costing £25-£80/ha
- Ordered a Cross Slot drill which is seen as being the main part of the jigsaw in allowing the successful integration of cover crops with cash and the anticipated benefits in soil health and fertility.
