CSF on the BASIS Trail

Working in partnership, Innovation for Agriculture (IfA), Catchment Sensitive Farming (CSF) and Ernest Cook Trust have produced a series of ‘Learning from the Land’ videos.  Filmed with soil specialist Matthew Shepherd, these videos show you everything you ned to know about healthy soils.

Watch the videos to get ready for the BASIS quiz!

Catchment Sensitive Farming (CSF) is a partnership between Defra, the Environment Agency and Natural England.

The partnership provides local, expert advice, training and grant support to enable farmers to take voluntary action to improve the environment and their farm business.  We want to help you improve your businesses through reducing nutrient losses, increasing efficiencies, improving soil health, machinery and livestock management.

  • worked with around 20,000 farms
  • helped farmers take more than 70,000 positive actions to reduce pollution
