Dr Paula Misiewicz, Senior Lecturer, Soil and Water Management, Harper Adams University will present the long-term results from the field-scale traffic and tillage experiment at Harper Adams University.

On Farm CTF Introductory Courses

Would you like to find out what CTF is all about with a hands-on practical course on your farm?

 

If yes, why not volunteer your farm as a base?  With your help, we will get others in your area to come along. We can create a course that will look at the potential of your soil and examines the diversity of cropping in your area. We can cover CTF, what it is and how it can be achieved - including practical tips and the economics for successful conversion. We can also address GPS guidance options and the importance of RTK in delivering a correction signal that will keep you on the straight and narrow and in the same place every year.
