Join us for the online launch meeting of the Fife Soil & Nutrient Network.
Mr Michael Jamie Black & Mr Ian Rankin of Edenwood Farms have kindly offered to be our host farm for this project. During the next 6 months, we will look at soil and nutrient management, with the aim of:
- Optimising fertiliser inputs and costs
- Identifying actions to improve soil structure and soil health
- Making the best use of manures
During this webinar, we will get an overview of Edenwood Farms, the rotations and nutrient planning, nutrient challenges in vegetable rotations and how they are met.
With an open format with the opportunity for your questions, this webinar event will provide guidance for the next webinar event due to be held in October/November time.
Please use this link to register your interest to attend. Once registered you will receive a confirmation email with details of how to join the meeting. There will be an opportunity to ask questions during the webinar.
The Soil & Nutrient Network host farms are taking a ‘before and after’ look at how to protect and improve farm soils and make the best use of both organic and inorganic fertilisers, saving money, benefitting yields and improving farm efficiency and resilience. The project has been running since 2017 and so far we’ve had 24 host farms located across Scotland. Each farm holds a series of meetings with a focus on locally relevant topics which have included nutrient management; soil biological; chemical and physical analyses as well as manure and fertiliser budgeting. You can find out more about what has been discussed on each host farm here.
