No-till with living mulches – the holy grail for arable?

Tilling damages soil structure, but it is integral to our modern farming systems. Being able to use green manures and mulches without having to plough them in would save carbon and preserve the delicate balance of our soils. 

In these presentations, three speakers explain just where we’re up to and how we are progressing to the ‘holy grail’ of arable farming. We look at why it’s desirable, what equipment is available and what someone’s personal experience is.
