Event description

Description

The Greening rules are changing! So it’s time to get to grips with Greening – to make it work for you, your business and the environment.

Speakers From:
NFU Scotland’s Policy team, The Game and Wildlife Conservation Trust, RSPB Scotland, and local farmers.

NFU Scotland will give an update on the Greening Rules that come into play on the 1st of January 2018.
RSPB Scotland and the Game and Wildlife Conservation trust will showcase how biodiversity (such as grey partridge and corn buntings) can benefit from EFA options, and The Soil Association will give results from their field-labs on how EFA can be used to build soil fertility, improving crop productivity, and profitability as a result.

Do you have a particular question about how EFA’s can be used? Bring them along on the night, or send them to us in advance – we will finish with a Question and Answer session with the whole panel, allowing for a lively debate to finish.

Tea, coffee and mince pies on arrival.

If you’re a farmer, grower or land manager, book your free place now: it’s open to all but we’re expecting this session to fill up quickly, and booking is absolutely essential. Use this online form, or if you prefer you can call Jane on 0131 666 2474, or email jdingwall@soilassociation.org. We'll give you exact venue details when you book.

If you aren't a farmer, grower or landmanager, your place will be charged at £40 + VAT - please call Jane on 0131 666 2474, or email jdingwall@soilassociation.org to arrange with us rather than using this online form.

Funding is provided through SRDP Knowledge Transfer and Innovation Fund (which is jointly funded by the Scottish Government and the European Union) with partner funding from Scottish Water and RSPB Scotland and Farm Advisory Service. (This event is part of a wider KTIF programme, Farming With Nature.
