For years, I have enjoyed and admired your logical and common sense written articles, often looking at situations in a way that few other people see them, and expressing a view that is enlightening and thought provoking. That must be a true journalistic flair!

Overheard at Cereals 2017... "PFI is getting a cult following"!

"The magazine that's really worth reading," says Clive Bailye, Soil Farmer of the Year 2016

Soil and Cover Cropping International

The section gives readers the experiences from zero-till farmers: how they get on direct drilling into stubble and grass; how they grow successful cover crops; how they have adapted and made no-till machines, including drills, adding liquid fertiliser kit, changing coulters etc.

The section helps farmers get zero-till right from the beginning, to help them avoid disappointment.
