As efficiency is being pushed across all sectors of agriculture it is becoming increasingly important to manage marginal land as economically as possible, while at the same time balancing the needs of biodiversity and the threats of climate change.

At this event, we will look the natural carrying capacity of the marginal land that is available on a large number of farms and crofts, funding available to manage this land and the potential to integrate forestry into the holding.
