Join this webinar to hear from monitor farmer David Cross and independent consultant Dr Liz Genever as we discuss soil health and other updates from the Monitor Farm.

This event will be hosted by Dr Nerys Wright, AHDB, and monitor farmer David Cross.

During the webinar we will provide an update on activity at the Monitor Farm. We will also share the details of the initial soil testing undertaken on the farm as part of a collaborative project with Dr Liz Genever, which forms part of Integrity Soils' CREATE UK course and Regenerate Outcomes.
