Maximising the benefits of cover crops event
Over the past winter, Dyson Farming have trialled a range of cover crop species together with Anglian Water and Boston Seeds.
We’re inviting all farmers, growers, agronomists, and industry representatives to join us on Tuesday 30th May 2023. Here you’ll learn from Dr Tom Storr (Dyson Farming) about the results of our cover crop trials which included large-scale plots covering tilled and no-till land. The plots included five cereals, four clovers, four vetches, four mixtures, three mustards and three radishes.
Kate Smith (ADAS) will also lead a practical session looking at the pros and cons of using companion crops in the rotation, balancing the management, costs, and wider environmental aspects to ensure success.
Date: Tuesday 30 May 2023
Timings: 10.00 am start with refreshments available from 9.30 am. The event will end at 12:30 pm.
