Soil Health & Management: Events to kick off the Sainsbury's Farming Scholars Programme

The Sainsbury's Farming Scholars Programme is a one-year programme created in partnership with Imperial College London and AGRI-net, which enables farmers and growers that supply Sainsbury’s, to explore a common theme critical to the future success of their businesses: Soil Health & Management.

In the first week of the programme (28th April - 1st May 2015), the Farming Scholars attended a week of events organised with Imperial College London and AGRI-net. This included a one day soil science workshop, a visit to Syngenta's International Research Centre, an Agriscience in the media science communication course and soil sample testing at the Natural History Museum.
