Molyneux Kale Company has been using green manure to improve soil health and structure - see GREATsoils video https://youtu.be/cMdP2Igv5mU. They are now keen to find out more about how different green manure combinations impact on soil mineral nitrogen availability, and nitrogen uptake of the succeeding kale crop. The group is based in Lancashire.
