In a year where the number of people killed on farms in Great Britain has almost doubled compared to the previous year, we need to take a more serious approach to a more serious issue… Why are farmers continuing to ignore the issue of safety? Why are twice as many over 60s having life-ending incidents on farms compared to the rest of the industry? And what are we going to do about it?
In this video, John Pawsey describes the agroforestry at Shimpling Park Farm. In December 2020 they planted 3 fields totalling about 50 acres with 3,500 trees that mimic the species in the adjacent SSSI woodland and are ideally suited for the farm soil type. Between the trees they are growing organic arable crops (cereals and pulses) and plan to also graze their sheep. The trees are planted in lines in the fields at 36m intervals, with 4m wide alleys.

My review is that it's a breath of fresh air to hear a properly put together argument on our side. The downside is that it's a bit long as it tackles all the issues in one video, but if it were split into bitesize chunks it would be a lot better.
Welcome to a brand new series of videos from LAMMA365 in partnership with Krone UK. Called Kronected Stream, in this eight-part series we’ll be peeling back the covers and really getting under the skin of Krone UK, exploring the journey from factory, to dealer to you the customer.
Coming up over the next eight weeks we’ll be learning all about the company, its people, its different departments, its products and, crucially, why it does what it does.
