At the Resilient and Ready launch webinar, each of the R&R farmers talked about why they got involved in the programme, their expectations and experiences so far in a series of breakout sessions focusing on the key issues facing farmers - biodiversity, soil health, energy, and water quality, all of which are at the crux of the biggest shake-up in farming policy for over 70 years.
Andy Bason is farm manager at Newhouse Farm, Hampshire, an 800-hectare estate which has been min-till cultivated for two decades. Andy leads this session on soil health & gives the audience insight into his work with soil health expert Ian Robertson.
Ben Lowe is a new entrant tenant farmer in Udny, Aberdeenshire, and leads this session about the role of trials in accessing information to make more informed business decisions. Ben is joined by Corteva Agriscience’s Head of Marketing Simon Parker.
