About this eventIntro
This farmer-focused webinar aims to explore how the latest innovative tools and machinery can help to make the principles of regenerative agriculture, an on-farm reality. The vast range of soil types, weather and topography experienced across the UK, means successfully integrating regen ag into existing farming systems can incur a range of challenges.
Following an introduction from Professor Jane Rickson, hear from Newcastle University’s Farms Director, James Standen, as he explains some of the challenges they have had to overcome in operating a regen ag-inspired system.
We discuss the Swedish System Cameleon drill and how its use can be adapted to suit bespoke farming systems and return on investment.
Dr David George, Reader in Precision Agronomy, introduces the new innovative tools that have recently arrived at Newcastle University via partnership with CHAP, and how you can access such technology.
The webinar will conclude with a Q&A.
- Professor Jane Rickson, Cranfield University
