GREATsoils: Engineering the landscape to secure asparagus production

This GREATsoils case study provides practical action points to reduce soil erosion in plantation crops. 

 

Cobrey Farms, asparagus growers, worked with Cranfield University to install grassed waterways to reduce runoff from fields.  This enabled land that was not formally capable of supporting asparagus to be used.  Whilst grassed waterways do not prevent soil erosion across the whole field area they maintain the soil in the field.
