Soil Foodweb Laboratories president Dr Elaine Ingham hosting seminars at Laverstoke Park

Laverstoke Park -- the organic farm in Hampshire owned by 1979 World Formula One Racing Champion Jody Scheckter -- is holding a series of seminars on compost tea technology.

The seminars — which take place on a range of dates from 13-20 November — aim to introduce growers to the principles of organic farming.

The events will be hosted by Dr Elaine Ingham — a soil microbiologist and president of Soil Foodweb Laboratories.

She said Soil Foodweb Laboratories can help growers achieve retention of nutrients, carbon and water in soils, protect crops from disease, learn new growing methods and help reduce dependence on fertilisers and pesticides.

But it has begun publishing a series of "technical notices" intended to explain the consequences for all parts of the economy should no deal be agreed with the EU by March next year.

After a sizeable dip last year, Europe's apple harvest looks to be back on track and could even break recent records. But the wider global situation means it should find a ready market.
