Film: What farmers have learnt from the living mulch field lab
Living mulches offer a way to build fertility without tillage or synthetic inputs, while sequestering more carbon and cutting costs. But can they be achieved without a significant yield penalty?
Six farmers have been working with AHDB and Organic Research Centre to find out. The group wanted to discover whether they can establish and successfully manage a permanent clover understory with the main goals of controlling weeds and fix nitrogen.
Watch this film to hear their findings so far and tips for doing it yourself.
