This year's Innovation Day will be an opportunity to hear from people across the network. As well as getting practical insight from the farmers who are trialling on their own farms, we'll also be discussing where to go next - what are the challenges that farmer-led research could tackle?
Here you'll find upcoming events organised and attended by Innovative Farmers:
Field lab kick-off meetings
The first step for a new field lab is to hold a kick-off meeting. Coming up:
13 March - Using Compost Tea on Crops, Newbury
22 March - Biochar: Measuring Effects on Soil and Animal Health, Cirencester
Generally, field lab groups meet up a few times a year. If you'd like to go along to find out more about a specific field lab, you can contact the group co-ordinator or get in touch and we'll put you in contact.
The Growing Resilient Efficient And Thriving GREATsoils project, funded by AHDB horticulture, are offering a series of free workshops on soil health.
The workshops are aimed at growers, but may also be useful for farmers and advisors. We expect that participants will already have a basic understanding of the link between soil health and plant health and will be looking to understand more about this and how soil testing can be used to strengthen their growing system.
All of the recordings from Innovative Farmers webinars can be downloaded for free at any time.
