Working with sister company FGS Agri we recently undertook 850 acres of drilling to establish 650 acres of legume rich sward, 90 acres of arable reversion mix and approximately 110 acres of wildflower mix, in order to fulfil pre-commencement conditions which needed to be discharged as part of a large renewable energy project.

The project included flailing tall rape stubble and established weeds, cultivations to promote weed and crop volunteers, subsoiling rutted tramlines, a herbicide application, cross drilling and rolling.
We then applied slug pellets to address the large slug populations created by the mild and damp autumn conditions, ensuring we maintained a minimum 15m buffer from all drainage ditches and ecological features across the site.

This scheme had the added challenge of working around other contractors, trial piling works and ecological constraints.

We thrive on these projects, ensuring that clear schedules of work are provided, communications are maintained and detailed RAMS are prepared to ensure the safe and quality delivery of the scheme.
