UK's first independent cover crop guide launched

With an SFI payment of £129/ha for Multi-species winter cover, now more than ever, farmers are pondering whether to implement cover crops on their farms to improve soil health, fix nitrogen or help suppress weeds - whilst being paid to do so! 


Yorkshire Agriculture Society's Farmer Scientist Network recently  launched the tool to provide up to date information and advice regarding cover crop selection and management.


The handy tool outlines details such as variety selection, sowing depth, sowing rate and other benefits.
