COLLABORATING WITH BRITISH FARMS
We’re working with our organic farmer co-operatives and other like-minded organic businesses to collaborate on one of the UK’s largest soil carbon measuring and soil health programmes.
Over the coming years, we will measure, over 1,200 fields at three different depths to get a better understanding of soil organic matter, carbon, soil structure and soil health. This will give us a clearer idea of the carbon stored in our soil from a variety of farm contexts and systems and understand the effects of regenerative organic farming on soil health and carbon sequestration.
