Managing soil & grassland
Balancing soils to help preserve the environment and productivity. Utilising organic principles, overlain with Albrecht Soil Science, ensures that any action taken is based on science rather than guesswork.
Introducing Lordington Park Agronomy
Led by Jonathan Holmes, a leading Albrecht Soil Scientist and Agroecologist, Lordington Park Agronomy specialises in equine and deer grassland management, and conservation agriculture.
We can help you customise your soil’s fertility and grass species to satisfy the optimum nutritional requirements of your animals and farming needs. The resulting increase in plant-soil interaction benefits all animals, reduces costs and increases health and productivity.
From our base in Yorkshire, we assist farmers of the future across the UK and beyond to holistically increase food production by continually upgrading their knowledge through lectures and practical demonstrations.
We help with sustainable farming, nutrient supply, soil structure, paddock weed control, fertilising paddocks, grassland maintenance, ragwort control, buttercup control, seed drilling and grass renovation.
I witnessed Lordington Park Agronomy’s enthusiasm and clear ‘passion’ for the subject and I wanted a thorough and ‘interested’ approach to my farms situation.
I now have a bespoke five-year plan to improve my farm’s sward and increased my knowledge and understanding of what the farm has and what it needs – a plan of action that is achievable and proportional.
If a potential client was deciding whether to work with Lordington Park Agronomy, ask to see a finished report for a client like me – it’s an excellent advertisement.

Jonathan Holmes presented at Groundswell, the no-till and regenerative agriculture show, at Lannock Manor Farm in Hitchin in June.
Nitrogen is required by grass to increase leaf development and growth rate. If the sward (upper layers of soil and grass) is interacting effectively with the environment, then little nitrogen will be required.
