Groundswell 2018 is focused on no-till techniques, soil regeneration and the value of livestock in arable and mixed farming situations. The show is designed ‘by farmers, for farmers’ who seek to change the paradigm of agriculture from extractive to regenerative.

Taking place at Lannock Manor Farm, Hertfordshire, it features speakers, workshops, seminars, innovative farming exhibitions and field scale direct drill demonstrations.

This year's speakers are respected voices in no-till and organic agriculture and environmental sustainability, including:

• Dan Kittredge (USA), Founder and Executive Director of the Bionutrient Food Association (BFA), a non-profit whose objective is to increase quality in the food supply, is speaking in the U.K for the very first time

• Dr. Ademir Calegari (Brazil), a soil scientist with three decades’ experience in cover crop management

• Joel Williams, an independent soil advocate who unravels the links between healthy soils and plant health.

Groundswell is relevant for anyone in the farming or environmental sectors interested in the role that the soil plays in improving the environment, be it carbon sequestration, water catchment, ecosystems or human nutrition and food quality.
