Are you interested in swapping the plough for a no till drill but unsure on the practical steps you need to take to make it work? Would you like to hear from local farmers who have made this conversion?

You are invited to a free workshop, delivered by The Nene and Welland Catchment Sensitive Farming Partnership to explore the practical requirements of making No Till a success. Come along to hear about:

  • Soil Management: Steps to successful conversion to No Till Farming
  • The current research behind no till
  • An update from local farmers who have converted to No Till
  • Top tips/lessons learned from farmers who have made the change
  • Considerations you should have before making the plunge
  • Drainage management – how to improve your land drainage in preparation for a change of tillage
  • The opportunity to ask your questions

A hot lunch and refreshments will be provided. (please inform us of any dietary requirements)

A request for BASIS & NRoSO points has been made.
