Integrated Crop Management & New Technology

You are invited to join us at our ICM & new technologies roadshow in Moray.Leatherjackets on soil

The development of a better understanding of your farm’s soil structure, fertility and capacity is an integral part of arable  management and contributes to crop health and ultimately yield.  We will discuss the value of GPS soil sampling and how this can improve nutrient management to ensure maximised and consistant crop yields throughout your fields.  We will also explore the opportunities for using drones (UAVs) in arable farming.

As the options for tacking crop pests such as leatherjackets become more limited because of the withdrawal of historic pesticide products, we will look at how developing a more integrated crop management (ICM) approach will help growers to adopt a more holistic approach to crop production with benefits to soil and field biodiversity.

The Greening rules have been updated for 2018 – we’ll give an update on what this means for your farm business.

TherFarming For a Better Climate logoe is increasing pressure for agricultural businesses to improve their carbon outputs.  By adopting ICM it is possible to improve cropping production with little or no increase of inputs.  This can lead to an improved carbon footprint.  To find out more about improving your farm performance and read what other farmers have done to reduce their carbon footprint visit Farming For a Better Climate.
