Brown & Co arable farmers interested in new and lucrative planting options are invited to a free miscanthus farm walk hosted by Terravesta, in association with Brown & Co. The event will be held on 30th September at Hackthorn, Lincolnshire and will showcase the commercial and operational rewards of growing the perennial energy crop, with insight into developments that will improve margins for 2015 and beyond.
After coffee and introductions at 10am, experts from the Terravesta team will lead a guided tour around fields planted with miscanthus of different maturity levels – including marginal land that is now generating a healthy £579 per ha. Attendees will hear about new processes that are set to lower establishment costs, and meet existing growers who will share their experiences with the low-input, high-return crop.
Terravesta’s specialists will also explore the compelling financial case for miscanthus as a more secure, long-term arable solution to wheat and other price-volatile cereals. The event will close at 3pm after a lunch and a Q&A session.
To book your space today, please email Helen Holman at Helenh@terravesta.com or call the Terravesta office on 01522 731873.
