The Northern England farm network has held its second co-innovation workshop (jointly with AHDB and ADAS) as a webinar, last week, on September 9th.
The webinar had a real focus on mixed-species swards with farmer-led research. James Drummond from Lemmington Hill Head Farm in Northumberland is trialling the performance of multi-species swards & herbal lays. Now in year two of the project, James has been working closely with delivery partner ADAS to monitor both animal and grassland performance. Other speakers included independent consultant Rhidian Jones, and livestock production specialist Emily Grant.
The webinar covered the following topics:
- What is SUPER-G?
- Sward establishment and expectations
- Grassland trial plots performance and results
- Project ambitions and next steps
