Mixed Farming

Using the framework of the Dyfi Biosphere, the overall aim is to pilot the concept of a data service with ancillary information that encourages movement towards sustainable mixed agriculture and a more resilient local food production economy.

The proposal core is an easily discernible information gateway showing historic agricultural and woodland land-uses in the Dyfi area, integrated with current information on aspects of land use using remotely sensed data, e.g., ecosystem services opportunity mapping.
The service will:
•    Demonstrate the feasibility and broader social and ecological benefits of mixed agriculture
•    Provide educators with local source material on the history of land-use and agriculture
