A few years down the line with experimenting with cover crops and herbal leys. What have we learned about what works and what doesn’t in different soil types and farming systems? Are we trying to do everything with cover crops, and could they work better as part of an integrated solution? Could herbal leys in stewardship options be grazed or mulched in a stockless system and provide similar functions on heavier soils? Could we then be drilling straight into them? Join Agricology for an informal discussion around the straw bales to share ideas, questions and practical experiences.
