Soils for Profit event at Helston
Thisisdevon.co.uk, May 30th
The Soils for Profit initiative held an event at Wood and Franchis Farms, near Helston, which was attended by 27 local farmers.
It was an opportunity for them to find out about new techniques and equipment that can help improve the management of their soil, manure and nutrients. The event provided practical advice on how farmers could improve productivity and make savings on expensive inputs by farming more precisely.
The project has just celebrated its 2,000th registration for a free on-farm advisory visit and has already held more than 150 group events across the South West.
