Yorkshire Farmer to Welcome Future Farmers Group
A Yorkshire Agricultural Society Nuffield scholar is to share his knowledge and experience with members of the Future Farmers of Yorkshire group who will visit his farm on Wednesday 8 June.
Richard Hinchliffe is a partner in the family’s 1,400 acre arable enterprise at Rawcliffe Bridge near Goole growing wheat, oilseed rape and beans. Soils range from medium silty loams to heavy clays and the farm is dependent on a pumped drainage system as on average, it is only six feet above sea level. The visit will include a tour of the BASF fungicide and biodiversity trials.
Richard is the Yorkshire Agricultural Society’s 2015 Nuffield Scholar and his topic is Herbicide Resistant Weeds: investigating a sustainable future for arable farming. A second link with the Future Farmers of Yorkshire group is that Richard’s sister, Sarah Graham, sits on the Future Farmers Management Team and is a land agent with Savills. The visit begins at 6.30pm and takes place at Tophouse Farm, Creykes Sidings, Moor Lane, Rawcliffe Bridge, Goole.
