Lots of ground covered at top arable event
Date Published: 07/07/2014
The brighter outlook for the organic sector and the research being done to help improve organic soils and productivity were just some of the things producers heard at National Organic Cereals 2014.
Held at Rectory Farm near Woburn, Milton Keynes, on July 1, the event showcased the latest science and information on the organic cereals sector, providing an invaluable day to farmers from across the country.
Our thanks go to our hosts, the Turner family, whose hard work and support meant that we were once again able to offer delegates an informative and enjoyable day.
As well as an extensive farm walk, which covered topics including soil management and the potential of mob grazing to help with soil structure, delegates had the opportunity to visit an array of exhibitors offering a variety of products and services.
Two presentation and Q&A sessions, chaired by Farming Today’s Charlotte Smith, enabled visitors to hear the latest from retail and industry experts on how the organic sector is performing.
Delegates were also provided with a snapshot of the latest soil research and development being carried out by the HGCA, as well as advice on securing organic tenancies and contracts.
If you missed the event or want to catch-up on any of the presentations you saw, we’ll be sharing them here on the website soon.
Once again we would like to thank all those who supported us to create such a fantastic day and we look froward to seeing you at next year’s event!
