New Farming Systems (NFS) 2006 – 2022
The New Farming Systems (NFS) project consists of a set of four experiments funded by TMAF and the JC Mann Trust. These mainly examine three inter-related themes;-
- Fertility building
- Soil amendment use.
These experiments are fully replicated, large plot studies using farm scale equipment and techniques. The core NFS work has enabled a number of other research projects funded and supported by other organisations.
