As climate conditions continue to change the sustainable management of water on farm is of great concern for many land managers around Scotland. From unprecedented wet weather to drought conditions, farms need to become resilient to ensure that they can try to minimise the impact of these changing weather patterns on land.

Working with the river/floodwater to utilise the water available can help your farm and support the ecosystem services within the area.
