Farmers’ meeting set to look at business resilience
The fourth Stowmarket Monitor Farm meeting this winter will be held tomorrow.
The meeting, which starts at 11am at Wyverstone Village Hall, Rectory Road, and includes lunch, will be discussing business resilience and identifying opportunities to reduce costs and increase income.
Speakers will be looking at a novel machinery policy to manage fixed costs, gross margins and prospects for spring crops, and farm business planning for 2021. Brian Barker at Westhorpe is currently Stowmarket monitor farmer.
January’s meeting looked at cover crops, and the potential they have for nutrient capture, building organic matter, reducing soil
You may also want to watch:
erosion, increasing farm biodiversity and for the farm shoot. However, there were important considerations when using a cover crop, including disease carry over, pest bridge, yield impacts and pay back, and establishment and destruction of the cover crop.
