Monitor Farm meeting: Hale Village
This meeting will focus on IPM and we will be hearing from Joe Martin (AHDB) about weeds and, in particular, ryegrass control options. Additionally, the loss of active ingredients is troubling many farmers, but not our second speaker John Pawsey who farms organically and will talk about his experience.
We are planning on going out into the field so please make sure that you bring suitable footwear/clothing.
Please meet at Manor Farm, Within Way, Hale Village, L24 4BZ.
About the farm
Bill Webb farms with his son Joe at Manor Farm in Hale Village, on the Mersey estuary. They grow potatoes, spring barley, winter barley, oilseed rape and wheat at the 417 ha farm, on a range of light to medium-heavy land. All but the barley is sold to customers within 20 miles of the farm – localism and strong links with the supply chain are key philosophies of the business. Ryegrass is the primary weed challenge at Manor Farm. Bill wants to keep learning and improving his farm, as well as bringing more locally-relevant research and knowledge to the North West.
