IMPLEMENTING five farming principles will not only improve and maintain soil health, but also reduce the growth rate of black grass, according to a leading agronomist.

Research carried out by Hutchinsons shows a 5x5 approach, which includes rotation and spring cropping - particularly barley - sowing higher rates of seeds and restricting cultivations to the top of 50ml of soil can boost crop competition to battle black grass.

FARMERS and landowners have a final chance to have their say on agricultural issues across the region at this year’s Midlands Machinery Show.

Leading regional law firm, Wilkin Chapman solicitors has already seen more than 200 people take part in its Future Farms Poll, which has been running during the spring and summer.

The Poll asks the rural community to identify its top priorities over the next five years – selecting from agricultural policy, succession planning, diversification and environmental and disease.

Its results are being collated to better inform the Wilkin Chapman agricultural team as it assists in shaping future priorities for the firm – while also passing the results onto colleagues at the East Midlands branch of the NFU, of which it is a panel member.
