Planting miscanthus with Terravesta live webinar launched

Miscanthus specialist, Terravesta, has launched a live webinar, to take place on 15 September at 10:00 am for those interested in future-proofing with Miscanthus. 

The event will explore the immediate and long-term benefits of planting the new performance hybrid, Terravesta AthenaTM, and will cover harvesting, returns, working with Terravesta on long-term, index-linked buy-back contracts and growing markets for the crop.

Ben Booth, sales manager at Terravesta, says the webinar has been launched due to increased interest in the crop and the lack of farm walks this autumn. “Our farm walks are well attended, and present the chance to find out more about the practical side of Miscanthus growing and the opportunity to ask questions. 

“We’ve recently launched a Virtual Miscanthus Farm Walk which has been well received. The Planting Miscanthus with Terravesta Live Webinar gives farmers the chance to speak to our team and ask any questions they have,” he says. 

“We’re looking for more growers for 2021 planting and welcome anyone interested in the crop to register,” adds Mr Booth.
