Jonathan Holmes

Albrecht Soil Scientist, and Agroecologist

Jonathan Holmes of Lordington Park Agronomy is an independent agronomist and university lecturer in agriculture, as well as teaching BASIS & FACTS.

A leading specialist in equine, deer and agricultural grassland management, Jonathan utilises the Albrecht model of soil balancing to develop sward management plans that are specific to both the environment and wellbeing needs of animals. His interests focus on establishing sustainable and profitable farming environments for arable and grassland farmers that also contribute to the reduction of atmospheric CO2. Current projects involve assessing the environmental and financial benefits of root colonisation with Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi.

When he’s not knee-deep in soil, Jonathan can be found hiking with his dogs or judging gundog trails.
