WHY MISCANTHUS?

Carbon dioxide levels are at their highest for 650,000 years, sea levels are rising, polar ice is melting, and global temperatures are at a record high.

Terravesta is on a mission to manage the world’s natural resources responsibly, helping to replace the dependence on fossil fuels with a sustainable plant-based alternative – Miscanthus.

Miscanthus is a key player in the climate change revolution.

TERRAVESTA EVENTS

Northamptonshire Miscanthus Farm Walk , 21st Nov 2019
Bulwick

Information
This November 21st we're in Northamptonshire, on Ashley and Matthew Eastland's farm. Visitors can find out how the hands off nature of the Miscanthus crop has allowed Ashley to diversify the farm business further and open a pet food shop.
Format
The free to attend breakfast farm walk will include a complimentary meal, a presentation from Terravesta and a chance to tour the Miscanthus crop.

Lancashire Miscanthus Farm Walk , 5th Dec 2019
Preston

Information
Miscanthus grower Benjamin Towers will showcase his crop right ahead of the first harvest. This farm walk will make for an interesting morning because the crop is grown primarily to feed the on-site biomass boiler.

Russell Armstrong

HEAD OF AGRONOMY

Russell has worked in farming most of his life, since aged 11 in fact, where he launched his career on a pig farm, helping out at weekends. Russell has an agricultural degree from Harper Adams and since then he’s worked on farms in one capacity or another, from a harvest supervisor post with G’s, a farm manager at Coldham Estate in Cambridgeshire, to an agronomist at Frontier. A self-confessed geek, Russell relished the opportunity to become a BASIS qualified agronomist and won ‘reserve champion’ for the Barry Orme Shield award – a big deal in agronomy. He still partakes in training sprayer operators, farmers and agronomists in his spare time. His role at Terravesta is dedicated to helping growers to improve crop performance.
