The IfA team will be presenting at the Groundswell event which takes place over two days – Wednesday 26th and Thursday 27th June 2019 at Lannock Manor Farm, North Hertfordshire. On the IfA stand we will be showing practical soil science demonstrations and technical talks on soil health regeneration and the methods of integrating livestock back on to arable farms. Stephen Briggs, the head of Soil & Water here at IfA is also giving a seminar on ‘Agroforestry – A win win for farming and the environment‘ in the Soil Tent on 26/06/2019 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM.
If you plan to be at the event, please feel free to pop in and say hi to the team!
Entering its fourth year, The Groundswell event provides a forum for farmers and anyone interested in food production or the environment to learn about the theory and practical applications of Conservation Agriculture or regenerative systems, including no-till, cover crops and re-introducing livestock into the arable rotation, with a view to improving soil health.
Groundswell is a practical show aimed at anyone who wants to understand the farmer’s core asset, the soil, and make better informed decisions. It is a two-day event featuring talks, forums and discussions from leading international soil health experts, experienced arable and livestock farmers, agricultural policy experts, direct-drill demonstrations and AgTech innovators.
With wide appeal across the food and farming spectrum, Groundswell is relevant for conventional, organic, livestock, arable, landowners or tenant farmers.
