Catching up with the Allerton Project

Ruth Bastow and Jenna Ross attended the Integrated Farming Workshop as part of the Allerton project in Loddington today. The Allerton Project researches the effects of different farming methods on wildlife and the environment, and dissemination of research through knowledge sharing activities.

 

The day involved various discussions, including the barriers and enablers to integrated farming. It also included a presentation by Prof Jonathan Leake, from Sheffield University, who spoke about discovering and sharing best practice, and the role of knowledge exchange. In the afternoon the group went out on a farm walk to see the impact of ley and different cultivation methods on soil health.
