Sown in the autumn 2016, beneficial insect beds were introduced into the fields for our 2017 season. These corridors contain nectar-rich flowers which provide the perfect habitat for beneficial insects to thrive in.
These insects eat the aphids which could devastate our crops. We also released further beneficial insects in both the corridors and flowering headlands. Not only are they important in keeping the aphids at bay, they look wonderful in the fields.
