Living mulches webinar

Date : 26th March 2024 | 7:00 pm - 8:15 pm
Venue : Online

The Organic Research Centre’s Living Mulches project has been running for the past three years to trial the integration of white leaf clover, as a perennial cover crop, into a cash crop rotations through direct drilling. Through this webinar we will give the latest updates on the project as well as a review of last year’s soil health data from the living mulch trials at Green Acres farm. Two speakers, Matt England from Fring Estate and David Newman from Bucksum market garden, will share their experiences of integrating living mulches into their farming systems. The webinar will end with a discussion on the current challenges with living mulches and how these could be overcome.

A few headline topics that will be covered:

  • Machinery used for living mulches
  • The best varieties and sowing densities for the living mulch
  • Details about sowing dates
  • Management techniques
  • Challenges with the system and gaps that need to be identified
