About the Event

If you've completed the Fundamentals of Regenerative Soil Health course and are ready to integrate the principles of soil health in your arable operation then this course is for you.

Led by agroecological advisor, Niels Corfield, this workshop will enable you to apply the soil health principles to specific arable management practices, including:

  • Establishment & seeding
  • Weeds and weeding
  • Fertilising
  • Harvesting & change over
  • Cropping
  • Intercropping
  • Residue management

Effective crop rotations are essential for healthy soil and so specific attention will be given to helping you:

  • Appraise existing and 'standard' rotations
  • Redesign your rotation using the soil health principles
  • Design and integrate cover crops mixes to regenerate soil health

We'll also take a look at equipment and machinery relevant to regenerative arable systems to help you take your learnings to scale, and explore FarmED's eight year arable rotation through the lens of regenerative soil health.

As always, your learning will be fueled by delicious refreshments and a nutritional and seasonal lunch from the FarmEAT kitchen.

Please arrive from 9.30 for refreshments and check-ins. The course will begin promptly at 10am.
