Win eight acres of herbal ley at Groundswell 2021
The Cope Seeds and Grain team is exhibiting at Groundswell Agriculture show on 23 and 24 June and will be offering the chance to win eight acres of herbal ley to anyone who comes to the stand over the two days.
“Visitors to the stand will be entered into our herbal ley competition and be taken care of with free drinks and sausage rolls,” says Gemma Clarke, Cope Seeds director.
Cope Seeds will be launching its new regenerative agriculture brochure, which features information on sustainable farming techniques, as well as varieties which complement this approach.
Also joining the team at the event is soil specialist Tom Tolputt, who is offering one-to-one 20-minute speaking slots to farmers.
“We have a big focus on cereal blends this year, and farmers will be able to find out about the rise of blends to help reduce inputs, benefit yields and support regenerative farming practices. Aside from that we have a diverse range of contracts suitable for regenerative farming practices, including spelt, ancient grains, blends and bi cropping buy backs,” says Gemma.
“We’ve supported the show since it launched and we are pleased to see it growing into a key event in the farming calendar, with regenerative agriculture rightly becoming so relevant to all farmers as we move through the agricultural transition,” adds Gemma.
Entering its fifth year, The Groundswell event provides a forum for farmers and anyone interested in food production or the environment to learn about the theory and practical applications of Conservation Agriculture or regenerative systems, including no-till, cover crops and re-introducing livestock into the arable rotation, with a view to improving soil health.
The new site of Groundswell is 100% outdoors and Covid secure. The event is still permitted to go ahead as planned in accordance with the Government’s “Phase 3” regulations as of 17th May. Groundswell is fully prepared with open-sided tents and large walkways, adhering to the latest coronavirus guidelines.
