Originaltext der Einladung
We’ve been busy planting the spring crops, barley, wheat, oats and beans on the farm, but preparations for Groundswell No-Till Show are in full swing. The enthusiasm we have received so far for our 2-day format, with a dedicated Grass-Fed Day in partnership with our friends at the Pasture-Fed Livestock Association has been really positive. We are looking forward to having the additional day to hear speakers, seminars and watch demonstrations dedicated to helping put livestock back on the land.
Preparation for the No-Till Day cover crop demonstration field is well underway. We had three drill dates with different drills which will be an interesting experiment in terms of establishment. The first was with the Simtech Aitchison T-Sem with double coil tine-mounted inverted ‘T’ coulters. The second was with the John Deere 750A and the third was with the Weaving GD. There are three seed mixes in the ground, supplied from our cover crop partner Kings. The first, the Vitality mix consists of Oil Radish, Oats, Strigosa Oats, Phacelia, Berseem Clover and Vetch, the Economy Power Mix consists of Oil Radish and Oats and the Siletta Nova Oil Radish soon after. After a very dry April we were happy to receive a sprinkling of rain last night, which hopefully will kick things off.
We will be announcing the final speaker and demonstration schedule soon. The full list of speakers is listed online, some of the headliners will be speaking on both days, albeit with talks in tune with the focus of each day.
We hope you’re as excited as we are to see so many fascinating pillars of the global sustainable agriculture community under one barn roof.
