The science bit

These pics may look like an attempt at a ‘sexy’ Farm Calendar but they are actually our farm during its current crop test phases. Our farm is now under lab conditions as we focus on the ‘science bit’ stage of testing and recording different micro greens and lettuce in variant conditions including substrates, densities and the set up of our crop benches.

The aim is to obtain the optimum growing conditions for each individual crop and with the help of our new farm manager’s expertise, we are finding even just subtle tweaking here and there is sometimes enough to affect or increase a yield dramatically which is exciting to see!
