Duchy College meeting in Jacobstow

Duchy College meeting in Jacobstow

Duchy College has recently organised a Carbon Focused meeting and farm walk for organic farmers at Cottage Farm, Jacobstow, with a view to see innovative practical application of Carbon Mitigation in action.

The key areas explored on Cottage Farm were

a) the use of deep rooted perennial fodder crops, such as Switchgrass, Cocksfoot, Lucerne and several others to build rich and deep humus in the soil, to achieve high yields without the use of fertilisers and to safeguard against draught conditions.

b) the use of renewable energy technology to displace fossil based energy.

c) the use of on-farm produced biodiesel made from either waste or home grown vegetable oil to displace fossil fuels for transport and farm machinery.

The participants, all major organic farmers from both Cornwall and Devon, were very pleased with the presentation, the practical demonstrations and the visit as a whole and have asked Paul to join their research group to help further develop organic farming methods and techniques.
