Managing soil & grassland
Balancing soils to help preserve the environment and productivity. Utilising holistic principles, overlain with Albrecht Soil Science, ensures that any action taken is based on science rather than guesswork. We help establish sustainable and profitable farming environments that contribute to the reduction of atmospheric CO2.
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 for arable environments.
We can help 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 adopting sustainable farming practices to increase nutrient supply, soil structure and, ultimately, profits.
We can also help with 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.
