*Postponed* BGS Research Conference 2020: Reading
Please note this event has been postponed until further notice.
The 13th BGS Research Conference will focus on the topic of multi-species swards. With a number of large-scale projects currently underway in the UK and across the EU, this is currently an enormously topical area of research. The conference will provide a venue for presentation and discussion of recent results from research on multi-species swards, as well as an opportunity to learn from farmers and advisors with experience of establishing and managing multi-species ‘herbal leys’.
The themes will cover a broad range including:
- aspects of drought and flooding resilience
- soil fertility and structure
- forage nutritive value
- animal health benefits
- grazing and sward management and monitoring
- the use of multi-species swards in arable rotations
- Visit to CEDAR
