Learn How to Blitz your Bracken at Argyll Small Woods Cooperative Demonstration Day!July 11, 2017
Is your farm awash with bracken? It’s time to blitz your bracken and we have the solution! Come along to the free Argyll Small Woods Cooperative Bracken Clearing Demonstration Day in Kilmartin, Argyll on 25th July to see the latest in weed wiping machinery.
Since the introduction of “Greening” laws, field maintenance has gained a new importance. However, despite the fact it supports up to 40 species of invertebrates, bracken has posed an ongoing problem for years. This is because it carries diseases for sheep and cattle, therefore reducing the land available for grazing. It is also carcinogenic for humans. What’s more, the new rules and regulations also mean that failure to keep bracken under control can lead to serious financial implications for farmers.
The best way to avoid such implications is to invest in a topper, mower or weed wiper but with so many machines on the market it can be difficult to choose. If you are unsure how best to wipe your weeds, then why not pop along to the Argyll Small Woods Cooperative Demonstration Day! Not only will you get to see the latest mowers, toppers and weed wipers in action but you will also learn about how bracken grows and spreads and a little about the value of bracken, grants and funding and the Asulox update. Check out the line up of machinery we will be bringing below.
