Two forward-thinking farmers will be sharing their experiences at an Essex agricultural meeting.
The fourth winter meeting of the AHDB Chelmsford Monitor Farm takes place on February 4 from 9am to 12.30pm at Galleywood Heritage Centre in Chelmsford.
The meeting will look at profitable break crops for rotations, recent problems with cabbage stem flea beetle, drought and growing oilseed rape in Essex, as well as growing new crops.
Andrew Fairs of Fairking Ltd of Colchester and Mark Bowsher-Gibbs of GH Dean in Kent will be joining the group to share their experiences of growing alternative break crops in the rotation. Soya, borage, phacelia, millet and oats will all be looked at.
