Grief and Loss

Many people associate the term grieving with a person (or pet) having passed away, but we experience the same type of grief process every time we encounter a significant sense of loss, regardless or the circumstances.

Project Lamport, now in its seventh year, is the UK’s leading R&D trials event. The original concept aimed to develop a cultural approach to blackgrass control, but has since evolved over the years. The site now explores improving soil health, as well as a comprehensive research project that investigates the impact of cultivations, compaction and cover crops on soil structure, organic matter and microbiology.

Expect weekly updates on Project Lamport, allowing you to participate in the entire journey rather than just the final product. These updates conclude with the official Project Lamport site demonstration and a live Q&A with our experts on the 15th of July.

Shorter food supply chains can make the UK more resilient in the face of pandemics and climate change - but only with bold government intervention, according to a new Soil Association report.

The report sets out that local and national government...

Check out the latest varieties at Cereals LIVE

Informed variety selection is key for arable farmers; whether looking for peak yield potential, disease resistance or many other select traits, the right characteristics can set a crop up to flourish.

Though achieving the highest treated yield has been the main driver for a lot of growers, untreated yield and disease resistance are coming to the fore of variety selection as efforts are made to optimise pesticide usage and increase gross margins.
