Women in Agriculture Lanarkshire: Grassland and Soils

At this first Women in Agriculture event of the new session, we will focus on soils and grassland.

Grass is the most important crop on any farm and is quite often overlooked.

This meeting will cover some of the basics of

  • Grass species and weed identification

  • Fertiliser applications for optimum production

  • Reseeding methods.

  • If you have any particular issues, troublesome weeds or poorly performing grassland there will also be an opportunity to bring along a spadeful of your sward for assessment by the consultants.

This event will begin in Glassford Hall, and then move on Craigthorn Farm by kind permission of the Fleming Family.

Suitable clothing and footwear should be worn.
