Where can I find support with solving soil health, crop protection or pest problems?
CHAP has funded a number of precision till sow and spray cultivators. These are available for hire from Stockbridge Technology Centre, allowing farmers to test strip-tillage approaches which could benefit soil and crop health. Contact chris.delf@CHAP-solutions.co.uk for more information.
The Biorenewables Development Centre can perform feasibility studies and recommend potential solutions related to soil health (e.g. anaerobic digestate as a soil additive), crop protection and pest problems, recommendations for future work and can identify associations/networks/organisations who could provide further expertise.
