Young Farmers Sustainable Solutions Seminars

    Businesses the world over recognise that greater returns come from aligning economic, social and environmental interests. Farming is no different.  Healthy profits that flow from fully integrating productivity and environmental measures - driven by highly skilled and motivated teams - mark out winning arable businesses.

    As farmers face increasing financial and environmental challenges, could collaboration be the answer? We hear from arable farmers working and learning from each other, new entrants and the wider community.

    A mixed farming system offers additional benefits and income streams – and for many businesses it provides an overall net benefit that surpasses the sum of the two parts. This session explores the value that agroforestry, livestock and bioenergy can bring to arable businesses.

    How does the next generation manage the stresses and strains of the modern era as well as inspire and encourage greater inclusion and diversity into the profession?

    Understanding the details surrounding new legislation and environmental schemes across the UK is critical for farming businesses if they are to maximise the opportunities in the drive to create ecosystem services for society alongside food production.

    Improving drainage, managing flooding, run-off and drought are crucial to delivering greater crop productivity and mitigating risks of soils and pesticides entering watercourses. This session provides scientific and practical insights on creating farming systems that can withstand increasingly challenging weather events.

    Cover and companion cropping are amongst a raft of measures being deployed to rebuild soil structure and health. Scientists and farmers provide their own insights and experience into soil restoration.
