About the event

This event builds on the trials on maize establishment at Tregooden Farm by Farm Net Zero Monitor Farmers, Malcolm and Catherine Barrett. Please note it is not hosted at Tregooden Farm, but at the above address.

We will present the results of three methods of maize establishment; one crop after grass and the other after wheat. The results on yield, quality, soil health and soil carbon will be provided with film footage from Tregooden.

This event will be open to discussions and ideas for a Field Lab on maize establishment with our Farm Net Zero project partners, Innovative Farmers. Attendees will be invited to discuss innovations they have put in place for growing maize including cultivations, under sowing, or use of cover crops. The event will be the first opportunity to participate in (or observe) a maize- focused Innovative Farmers Field Lab.
