Interested in intercropping and its potential benefits to crops and soil health? If so, you may want to attend this half day workshop to introduce the EU project DIVERSify, obtain farmer-feedback on intercropping experiences and advertise funded opportunities for farmers to become involved. There will also be an opportunity to view the equipment that STC have been using to establish strip-tilled cereals into clover understories, as well as visit this year’s clover/winter wheat plots.
