At least six farmer groups are needed, each group comprising 10 to 15 people, to help measure the impact of a range of soil health management innovations.
The innovations were identified, during workshops and a survey held in 2017, as being used on commercial farms in the UK. The groups will help evaluate the potential of these innovations to be used more widely. The Partnership wants to hear from established groups or individuals who would like to be part of the group. All respondents will be contacted in February and invited to attend a regional meeting for further planning and discussion. The final groups chosen will represent a wide range of farms and farming systems across the UK and will be part of the project until 2021.
