Project Detail

ERDF -Multi-species Swards via Cornwall Agri-tech(TOMS)

There is an increasing interest in the use of multi-species swards/herbal leys/diverse forages, as evidenced by the recent Agri-tech Cornwall Grazing Innovation Workshop. Both Rothamsted Research and Duchy College bring a wealth of expertise and experience in grassland and soils research and they will bring this knowledge together to form a multi-species sward hub which will work with Cornish based SMEs to generate products and services to support a growing interest in multi-species leys. A great deal of demand has already been demonstrated for the project following engagement with individual businesses and a recent grazing workshop held in Camborne. This preliminary work has identified a number of SME's who are keen to engage in the project including seed companies, animal nutritionists, agronomists and consultants.
