New Regenerative Agriculture Project!

This term, our Land-based Industries students have been contributing to our brand new Regenerative Agriculture Project by getting involved with some soil science fieldwork – looking at the health, characteristics and physical properties of the soil, including compaction and organic matter content.

This exciting new project aims to demonstrate, and continually innovate, good agricultural practice in a world faced by increasing challenges. In addition, the project will provide an ongoing ‘land laboratory’ for students to gain first-hand experience in trialling innovative approaches to sustainable agriculture!
