Approximately 84% of Wales’ land area is farmed. Thanks to our mild and wet climate, that land is ideal for growing grass whilst rich and fertile soils support arable and horticulture production.

Testimonials:

Wyn and Eurig Jones
“After applying precision soil mapping on the arable land this has allowed us to capture £720 of savings on lime – instead of applying at a flat rate 170 tonnes at a cost of £5,100, variable rate application maps allowed lime to be targeted where it was needed, reducing the volume used to 146 tonnes.”

“The Master Grass course gave me the confidence to implement a rotational grazing system on the family farm, and raised my awareness of the potential of incorporating the system within our sheep enterprise”
