Basalt rock dust - will it grow us more grass?


Cost: Free

Join Farming Connect to hear about an ongoing project that is trialling rock dust’s potential as a grass nutrient at Upper House, Howey. During the event, information will be shared on the project plan, set-up and the data gathered to-date, including soil sampling, sward composition assessments and grass production measurements.

There will also be an opportunity to hear about a project that the UK Centre of Ecology and Hydrology are involved in, looking at whether the application of basalt rock dust onto upland grassland will enhance the long-term capture of carbon in the soil and water.

Booking is not essential but encouraged for catering purposes.
