Arable intercropping and variety trials

24 April 2019

Intercropping in arable systems and variety trials field lab meeting at Roundhill Farm near Swindon, SN6 7QR from 10.00am

Hosted by James Hares this event is a joint meeting between two field labs: Intercropping in arable systems and Organic Wheat Varieties. It will include an introduction to the two field labs and a farm tour of Roundhill Farm. James will give us some background to the farm and show us the trials in the field, and we will explore methods for on-farm monitoring of crop cover as a key performance indicator. Lunch will be at a local pub with a chance to catch up on what’s in the ground this year, an overview of group trials, planned assessments, summer events and setting a rough time/location for the next meeting (post-harvest).

In the afternoon there will be an optional excursion to see organic winter wheat plot trials at Bradwell Grove (OX18 4JR). Details tbc.
