GrowHow - New sponsorship for Muck and Soil Northwest 2012
With new sponsorship,more exhibitors and demonstrations and free nutrient management clinics, the newly branded Muck and Soil Northwest 2012 is set to be bigger and better than ever this year.
Now in its sixth year, the event will take place at Reaseheath College, Nantwich, Cheshire on Tuesday, March 20 with live machinery demonstration, one-to-one clinics, trade stands and a wealth of information on soil, nutrient and manure management.
Muck and Soil Northwest - a FREE event for farmers and contractors organised by HarveyHughes Limited - also has a major new sponsor - GrowHow, the national fertiliser manufacturer based in the county.
"We are delighted to welcome GrowHow on board the event," said Chris Harvey of Harvey Hughes Limited.
"As well as showing farmers how to make best use of their farm yard manure and slurry, this year's event will help them make even more progress in cutting their carbon footprint by making sure they use Nitrogen fertilisers more efficiently," he said.
On arriving at Muck & Soil NorthWest, visitors will be able to book a half-hour nutrient management clinic with a HarveyHughes consultant. The clinics will focus on Cross Compliance obligations and NVZ Regulations as well as more general nutrient management issues. Farmers can bring their own NVZ records and pre booking a slot in the free confidential clinic will fast track them into the event.
Also new for 2012 is the addition of soil improvement equipment with a dedicated 3.5-hectare demonstration area. Further practical demonstrations will show to calibrate fertiliser spreaders for more even and accurate application of granular products.
A huge range of muck and slurry handling machinery and storage facility options can be seen in action throughout the day with live commentary to help farmers and contractors select the most effective kit to suit their needs and improve their slurry and muck utilisation.
Commenting on the sponsorship, Elaine Jewkes, GrowHow grassland specialist said: "GrowHow offers a range of products and services which help to ensure that farmers can use nutrients most efficiently to produce quality forage and crops. This ranges from the straightforward approach offered in the Blueprints for Growth Grass booklet, with templates showing how to incorporate fertilisers and manures effectively, to the comprehensive nutrient management programme, EnCompass. This can really help take the strain out of nutrient management."
Come along to the GrowHow stand at the Muck & Soil North West event this year where we will be holding a competition. You will not only have a chance to win an iPad 2 but you can also discuss your nutrient requirements with the GrowHow Team.
