The twin themes of meticulous measurement and careful management recurred throughout the presentations by young TMAF-supported researchers Joe Martlew and David Clarke and experienced and award-winning Suffolk farm manager Edward Vipond during our Winter Meeting at Morley Farm.
We invited Swedish thought-leaders on farm carbon capture to explain the seven steps they believe will change on-farm practice and fast-track new technical innovation. The result? Reduce farming’s carbon emissions, improve carbon capture and be rewarded for it.
At our TMAF Winter Talks we have the chance to listen to and question two of Europe’s most influential thought-leaders on why and how we can measure farming’s carbon footprint to the benefit of farm businesses.
With the promise of spring in the February air outside the Morley meeting room, inside at the winter event at TMAF there was a succession of spritely presentations on promising research to contribute to better farming.
We are holding our annual TMAF Winter Event and AGM, at the Morley Business Centre on Wednesday 5th February 2020. We have again selected a fine line-up of topics and speakers to provoke thought, stimulate discussion and inform decision-making on farms in our region.
If you want a measurement of how interested East Anglian farmers are in fine-tuning their farming practices, and where they know they will find inspiration and practical ideas, then look no further than our latest Morley Innovation Day. Well over 200 farmers from all over East Anglia came to have conversations with more than 60 specialists and advisors on stands and on sites in the Morley Farm fields.
The Morley Innovation Day taking place on 20th June 2019 in Norfolk, showcases the latest arable advice and research from UK agri-businesses, manufacturers and research organisations at the forefront of agri-tech innovation and technology, research and commercial enterprise.
You are invited to join us at Morley Business Centre as we celebrate the Morley Agricultural Foundation’s long-term experiment programme, MENTOR, which is co-ordinated by NIAB. These experiments have informed change in agronomy over decades. At this meeting, we will be bringing together the results for the last 10 years and more, reflecting on what they have taught us and consulting on the future of the experiments.
