Since 2008, Thorpe Farming has been trialling the benefits of direct drilling and reduced tillage with excellent results.  There are many reasons for the decision to follow this path, but primarily it is to save establishment costs, assist in better control of blackgrass, conserve moisture and allow the soil to regenerate and structure itself.

A development programme is currently in progress to try to improve the establishment of cereals and spring break crops which will incorporate direct drilling technology with more traditional heavy land farming techniques.  This project is being developed and evaluated in conjunction with Wright Resolutions and Tillso Ltd
