A unique opportunity to engage with literally "ground breaking" research projects which are examining how better monitoring of soil health can provide greater management of this resource.
2018 marks the 175th anniversary of Rothamsted; our origin dates from the initial plantings in 1843 on Barnfield and Broadbalk fields, the first classical long-term experiments.
Healthy soils for sustainable agriculture: the role of SOM
Meet Jackie Stroud and other scientists from Rothamsted Research, to find out how earthworms help farmers grow food, and explore worm burrows in the soil.
Join Rothamsted Research at our ‘More from Less’ exhibit at Grassland & Muck.
What are the methods for assessing and improving soil health? Can scientific research determine the best plant varieties and farming practices to ensure soil health for farmers in the tropics? This is your chance to ask these questions and more.
