Pearce Seeds Organic Variety Trails Event

Pearce Seeds are continually looking to improve varietal choice and agronomic procedures within the organic seed industry and have been involved with growing and producing organic seed since 2001.  On Tuesday June 3rd 2014 they are holding an Organic Open Day near Sturminster Newton, Dorset.  There is a varied programme for the event with the programme being repeated in both morning and afternoon with lunch provided.

The event will be an opportunity to look at cereal varietal choices with emphasis on regional suitability and in addition there are some demonstrations of the weed control techniques discussed at the Organic Producer Conference back in January and in our blog piece ORC Conference Reflections.  These demonstrations are of weed control through raking, a gas burner and a CombCut machine and there will be an opportunity to discuss what you have seen.   They are also offering the opportunity to look at organic vegetable production.

Finally, in a full programme there will be a presentation by Peter Melchett – Policy director with the Soil Association on the future of organic farming.
