Newport Monitor Farm meeting: no-till

December 9, 2015

Till vs no-till: Newport Monitor Farm meeting, 9 December 2015

Dear all,

The AHDB Newport Monitor Farm has its next meeting on 9 December 2015. Please find full details of the meeting below.

Date: 9 December 2015
Time: 10:00am (lunch included)
Venue: Howle Manor, Newport, Shropshire, TF10 8AY
Topic: No-till farming

At the October meeting we discussed whether a growing emphasis on soil health could play a key role in farmers’ tillage decisions.

We are following this discussion up at the December Monitor Farm meeting, when we will be joined by Jeff Claydon (Claydon Drills).  He will speak to us about his first-hand experiences with no-till farming, and we will then discuss and analyse the potential merits and drawbacks of both conventional tillage and no-tillage systems.

The meeting will also include a machinery demonstration in a nearby field so please bring suitable clothing and footwear.

BASIS & NRoSO points have been applied for.

It would help to know how many of you can join us. Please email me if you intend to come along.

Yours sincerely

Richard Meredith
