Water-friendly farming in the Soar

Project Type

Project Catchment

Date

2019-2022

Working with WWF and Tesco to promote sustainable agriculture and increase resilience in the Soar Catchment from the Beef and Dairy industry.

For rivers to thrive, nature needs to be considered in the food production process. Operating within the Soar catchment, Trent Rivers Trust worked with Beef and Dairy farmers to help manage their environmental impact and reduce negative impacts on aquatic habitats from agricultural activities by improving soil health, water management, and increasing biodiversity.

In the Soar catchment, rivers and streams are in poor biological and chemical health and farming is one of many contributors to this. The key to this project was working in partnership with the people that put our food on the table, by acknowledging the need for farmers to run productive profitable farms and practice water-friendly farming.
