Register now to get involved in a series of monthly interactive digital events for farmers in the Nene and Welland catchments.
We are delighted to announce that, despite the ongoing pandemic and restrictions, we are coordinating a new series of interactive webinars for farmers in the Nene and Welland catchments, alongside our partners at the EU's Water Environment Grant scheme.
2020 was a difficult year for getting people together, so we're trying something entirely new for 2021 with this series of monthly digital events, which are designed to keep the farming community in touch with our partners and up to date on new developments. Each will take place via Zoom for two hours, from 2pm, on the third Monday of each month, February through to May.
We will be running the webinars as open space events which will allow for several presentations to occur simultaneously and for participants to move freely between the presentations as well as connect with one another in a ‘free space’ virtual room.
Dates and Themes are as follows:
Monday 15th Feb - Updates from key partners
Featuring updates from Natural England's Peter Brown, the NFU's Simon Fisher, and our own Helena Darragh on our Farming for the Future project.
Monday 15th Mar - Findings from Local Field Trials
The latest developments and discussion from local agricultural field trials, including cover crop performance, soil health, farming and ammonia, and more.
Monday 19th April - Farming Carbon
An insightful session covering farm scale carbon accounting, soil biology, and greenhouse gas emissions.
Monday 17th May - Managing Landscape Elements
With speakers including Neil Fuller and Chris Stoate, covering topics including herbicide resistance, land drainage, sward care and the role of livestock.

We look forward to reconnecting with the farming community after such an awkward period, and bringing farmers back together in one setting to learn, discuss and inspire.
