Diversification is the future

74% of farmers are more likely to diversify their land due to Brexit, according to results of a study from the Farm Business Innovation show.

Terravesta will be speaking to farmers and landowners about maximising returns on marginal land with Miscanthus, at the Farm Business Innovation Show, which takes place at The NEC Birmingham, on 8th and 9th November.

Grown for UK power generation, both small and large scale, Miscanthus guarantees returns on long-term contracts and promises a move away from the price volatility associated with traditional agricultural markets.

Terravesta works with growers to facilitate planting, provide agronomic support throughout the crops life, and offers long term index-price-linked contracts.

William Cracroft-Eley, Terravesta chairman, will be presenting a seminar that’s open for anyone to attend, on both days of the show.

“Miscanthus is ideally suited to lower grade, marginal land,” says William Cracroft-Eley. “It’s a low input, high output option, and once established, no fertiliser is required, as the rhizome recycles nitrogen back into the soil.”

Terravesta is looking for more growers to help to meet the increased demand from whole bale power stations. “We’re offering growers 10-year retail price index-linked contracts, with guaranteed returns,” adds William.

William and the rest of the Terravesta team will be on stand number 1150 at the Farm Business Innovation Show to answer any questions you have on the UK’s number one energy crop, and making its first appearance at the Farm Business Innovation Show is the new Miscanthus fuel range, and the new Briquettes, Heat Logs and Firestarters will be on show.
