Peas are a spring drilled crop which are used in rotation.
Peas are nitrogen fixing which reduces the use of fertilisers and improves the quality and yield of the crops following after harvest.
Oil Seed Rape
Oil Seed Rape is drilled in the autumn and is currently in the farming cropping programme as rotational crop.
Pollinator mixes are used on the field margins and any uncropped land.
The farm also is increasing the hedgerows and has a wildflower meadow.
This has helped to create a more beneficial wild life habitat for many species of insects, animals and birds.
It is a key part of the business's approach to integrate farm cropping with wildlife.
Wheat is drilled either in the autumn or in the spring.
Currently wheat is the main cereal crop on the farm.
