Soil, The Most Important Asset on The Farm

The Farmer Network Ltd has for many years encouraged farmers to embrace best practice, new techniques and technology. With reducing margins and increasing costs across all agriculture sectors, it has never been more important for farmers to keep an eye on “what’s new”.

Soil management is currently very much in the spotlight for many reasons. Now the Farmer Network is teaming up with Origin Fertilisers and Carrs Billington to offer an excellent, informative soils event.

Farmers are invited to join the Farmer Network and the Addison family at Spittals Farm, Temple Sowerby near Penrith, on Tuesday 26th November between 11am and 2pm.

The event will feature a guided farm walk, a soil sampling demonstration and analysis of results, fertiliser equipment calibration, nutrient planning and farming within the water framework. There will also be a best practice guide to winter feeding this year’s crops.

Adam Day, Managing Director of the Farmer Network said “Soil management techniques can be improved in many ways. We hope our demonstrations will lead to discussion. We also want farmers to contribute their own knowledge and experiences on the day. We believe farmers work best when they work together. This will be a really inter- active event”.
