Farmer-Led Solutions to Underperforming Fields & Marginal Land

Discussion Tent

How do farmers utilise all the fields on the farm while minimising the use of inputs? By using nature-friendly innovation, farmers are pioneering practices that bring underperforming fields back from being a sink on the business. Through the Innovative Farmers programme, farmers and researchers are teaming up to trial a range of techniques from mob grazing in dairy farms, creating wildflower margins to tackle pests and using satellite data to inform effective pasture management. Each field lab is trialing ways of harnessing biological processes to enhance the potential of floundering fields and turn them into flourishing habitats for yield, biodiversity and carbon capture. Join this session for a chance to find out about the latest research and hear experiences straight from the farms involved.
