Grassing the Bare Patches Update Autumn 2022

30 Apr 2022 8:12 PM | Alex James (Administrator)

Grassing the Bare Patches is a citizen science project that has been running in Bywong and Sutton over the past eighteen months. It has been looking at bare patches of ground on three small farms and simple things that might be done to repair them.

We have tested the soil before and after so we can compare the controls with the plots where we applied treatments. We have measured the herbage mass each season and recorded the plant species that we observed growing on each plot.

This blog post contains a summary of the project findings and a comparison of the soil test results from the beginning and end of the project.
