Helping our soil micro-organisms to thrive

24 August 2021

We are trialling different no-till drills here this summer. We are looking hard at whether we can move the minimum amount of soil to establish our crops. Combined with cover crops over the winter, we are planting grass with this New Zealand drill and we will therefore have green cover on all our land, all year. We hope this will lock-in more carbon and help our soil micro-organisms thrive. It will also help prevent run-off and provide good cover for our wintering birds.
