Wanted: Farmers with a passion for soil health


Do you raid your underwear drawer to bury your undies? Does your ability to dig holes rival that of a mole? Do you feel at one with your land? If so, there are like-minded people who want to hear from you.
As part of the AHDB Soil Health Partnership, they are looking for farmers with a passion for soil health to get involved with the project.

Designed to help farmers and growers better understand and manage soil health, the Partnership is on the lookout for at least six farmer groups (each group comprising 10 to 15 people) to help measure the impact of a range of soil health management innovations.

The innovations were identified, during workshops and a survey held in 2017, as being used on commercial farms in the UK. The groups will help evaluate the potential of these innovations to be used more widely.
The Partnership wants to hear from established groups or individuals who would like to be part of a group.
All respondents will be contacted in February and invited to attend a regional meeting for further planning and discussion.

The final groups chosen will represent a wide range of farms and farming systems across the UK and will be part of the project until 2021.

To express an interest in joining a group, please complete the short survey on the GREATsoils web page at https://ahdb.org.uk/projects/greatsoils.aspx
