Cultivating the Control Plot

Ian was busy cultivating the control plot of spring barley this weekend. Barley has been grown for many years at Honeydale, so we’ve retained this control plot to monitor what happens to the soil when a monoculture is grown, compared to fields sown for improvement with our diverse eight year crop rotation.
