Join the Campaign for the Farmed Environment at free workshops this March to discuss how nutrient management planning and measures to reduce ammonia emissions can benefit your farm business.
Using nutrients efficiently and adopting best practice for managing slurry and manures can help you secure the best performance from your crops, grass and livestock. It is also a vital step in reducing water and air pollution, and could save you money on bought-in fertiliser costs.

Even more CFE events – Biodiversity, soils & managing hedges
CFE are also holding a further 15 free events which will take a look at the many positive ways that biodiversity can be integrated into a productive farm business, and all are welcome to attend. Managing hedges for wildlife and wood fuel, enhancing field margins and fallow land for pollinators and farmland birds, and the links with water quality, will be discussed.
