South Lincolnshire growers looking for a more secure, long-term arable solution have a chance to find out about growing an energy crop.

With wheat prices continuing to plummet, arable farmers are increasingly considering miscanthus, according to Terravesta chairman William Cracroft-Eley.

Now the company has organised free ‘miscanthus walks’ in north Lincolnshire to showcase the commercial and operational rewards of the crop to potential growers.

The Lincolnshire farm walks will take place from September 30 to October 3 in Hackthorn, with a further two events in Northamptonshire.

Growers will be guided around working miscanthus sites and will be able to hear about new processes and techniques that are set to lower establishment costs.

They will also get the chance to meet existing growers who will share their experiences.
