Can multi-cropping work for you?

This workshop will explore multi-cropping opportunities and impacts in the UK
Multi-cropping describes farming approaches that grow several species or varieties of crop in one place.
It is commonplace in developing countries where farmers claim benefits in terms of nutrients, water, pest and disease control, as well as helping reduce erosion and improve soil structure.

But does it work here? This workshop aims to explore whether multi-cropping can work for productive UK farms, and to look at its impact on soil structure and function.

The day will feature:
? Practical multi-cropping options - Prof. Martin Wolfe (Wakelyns Agroforestry)
? Multi-cropping impacts on the soil - Dr Matthew Shepherd (Natural England).
? A workshop session – would multi-cropping would work on your farm? Led by Jurgen Ehrmann and Prof. Karl Ritz (Cranfield University)
? A farm walk – see multi-cropping in action at Wakelyns.
