Plugging the Gaps in the Keer
With funding from the Environment Agency, in January 2022 we started a project to engage with farmers in the Keer catchment. The initial phase of this project will run until the end of March 2022. During this period we will be building up our contacts with the local farmers and carrying out a number of assessments (farm infrastructure audits, soil analysis, nutrient management plans) on some of the farms. The long term aim of the project is to work with farmers to adjust working practices or farm infrastructure, in order to benefit the operation of the farm and the River Keer.
