Field Lab: Grass Seed Mixes

Thursday 11 October 2018 - 13:00 to 15:30

Mouldyhills Farm, Langholm DG14 0XH

Soil Association Scotland

Come and join the Soil Associations third meeting at Mouldyhills, where they’ll be looking at how the five trial plots (which were seeded last summer) have fared this year in challenging conditions. The field lab will be joined again by grass and soil expert James Bretherton from AgScope.

Background to the Field Lab: Ready-bagged grass seed mixes are typically developed in southern England & Wales, in conditions very different from those experienced by farmers in Scotland. This field lab is looking at the effectiveness of alternative grass seed mixes and herbal leys, that are better suited to the soil type, climate and length of growing season in Scotland.

Lunch and hot refreshments provided, booking is essential.
