With the relentless rain and sodden ground, the National Association of Agricultural Contractors (NAAC) is hosting a land drainage training course later this month.
The event will take place at Harper Adams University on 30 January 2024, with another event pencilled for the following day should the demand warrant it.
The course will be run by Professor Dick Godwin and Dr Paula Misiewicz from Harper Adams who will take on the principles of water, soil and drainage. Fred Clarke from Mastenbroek, talking through the latest machinery, technology and drainage design.
“Land drainage is the building block of productive, sustainable farming. Greater fluctuations in rainfall need to be managed to avoid both flooding and drought, and it is vital that we understand the movement of water and the dynamics of land drainage to ensure the land can store and utilise water to maximum effect for sustainable land management,” notes Jill Hewitt, NAAC Chief Executive.
