Fertility building

Once harvest was all safely in the shed, our main focus switched to the harvest 17 crop. As part of our ongoing plan to build fertility across all of our farms, organic manures are imported to spread onto stubbles before being incorporated straight away with our cultivator. The manures that we use are chicken litter before 2nd wheats. This provides valuable nutrients to help get good root growth to the new wheat plants. We also spread recycled green waste in the form of compost and Farmyard manure from one of our contract farms that also rears poultry. This plays a vital role in helping to build the organic matter levels of our soils.
