Film: Three farmers come together to research no till and cover crops

The first in a series of films telling the story of Innovative Farmers has been released. 

Thames Water are facilitating a no till and cover crop farming field lab in the Evenlode river catchment to enable farmers to trial more water sensitive farming practices.

We caught up with three of these farmers who are embarking on 5 years of farmer led research to look at longer-term soil and water health benefits of these farming practices.
