Farm Walk with 2020 Runner Up Soil Farmer of the Year John Martin

Event date: 
Friday, October 23, 2020 - 10:30 to 12:30

John farms 320ha across light soils growing a range of combinable crops in an area which is severely protected from a water quality, nitrates and phosphates perspective. John has been working on soil management for the last 35 years and has been innovating both in terms of integrated pest management, cultivation, the use of cover crops, spring cropping and a reduction in fertiliser and plant protection to enhance soil biology.

John's event will be taking place using social distancing and hygiene measures that are compliant with the current COVID guidance and numbers will be strictly limited. If you would like any more information please contact Becky Willson at FCT on [email protected] or by phone on 07875 356611.

Due to the changing situation regarding COVID, the final decision on the event going ahead will be taken 7 days previously. If the face to face meeting has to be cancelled, the event will take place online instead.
