Flower Fields, Nates Lane, Wrington, Somerset, BS40 5RS

Run as part of the Duchy Originals Future Farming Programme, these field labs are farmer-led experiments and knowledge-sharing events. They are open to both organic and non-organic producers and aim to highlight best practice and showcase current farmer led trials. Taking inspiration from the farmer field school approach, pioneered among low-input farmers in Asia and transferred around the globe, they will help farmers to think practically about the challenges they face whilst equipping them with problem solving skills to improve their production systems and ultimately identify where further research could help the agricultural sector.

The use of foam weed control in flower, fruit and vegetable production.

AimLooking at new non chemical technologies for controlling weed without disturbing the soil. This is likely to be most applicable to perennial crops, but may have wider applications.
