Ideas for Net Zero farming in Cornwall

POTATO growers in Cornwall are being urged to contact Innovative Farmers with any ideas for a practice they’d like to investigate that could reduce GHGs, improve soil health and productivity.

The organisation will be running three field labs as part of the Community Lottery-funded Farm Net Zero project. 

Ideas received to date include:
•    Autumn sown cover crops - what works?
•    Potato cropping - effects on yields and soil
•    Planting techniques for herbal leys - strip till or direct drill vs total reseed
If any of these pique your interest or if you would like to suggest another idea, click here to get in touch.
