We are always keen to try new technologies in a bid to increase food production whilst lowering our carbon footprint and delivering improved ecosystem services. This includes the use of no-till, cover and companion crops, in row and foliar nutrition, compost, satellite guidance and variable rate soil testing and nutrient application and use of biological products. Current experiments include conservation agriculture trials with Syngenta and zero insecticide use.
We love farming and are always on the lookout for new opportunities to expand our enterprises. We are very flexible and currently our arable area is split between owned and rented land. We are always looking to improve soil fertility and farm for the long term.
