  • Helen Chesshire, Woodland Trust, reviews the numerous benefits of agroforestry on arable farms, the grants available to support inter-tree cropping and tree species selection.

  • George Hosier, Wexcombe Farm, Wiltshire runs a mixed farming business that capitalises on the synergies of animals in an arable rotation to deliver high quality crops and enhance soil and environmental health.
