What is a catch crop? Why are they important? Some forages can help reduce nitrate leaching. In this podcast you can learn more about practical opportunities to achieve this on farm. DairyNZ senior scientist Dr Ina Pinxterhuis talks with Dr Brendon Malcolm of Plant & Food Research, and Dr Peter Carey of Lincoln AgriTech, about the use of catch crops after winter forage grazing. Catch crops can reduce the environmental footprint of farms and improve productivity. If you're a dairy, arable or sheep and beef farmer, this podcast is for you.
