A really useful output of the BFWN DEFRA Test & Trial is the simple monitoring tool for cultivated margins – the key intervention on farms for up to 600 rare, threatened and scarce species. If you would be interested in using this to assess the margins on your farm please get in touch using the contact form. This was developed by Dr James Gilroy using data from the Breckland Biodiversity Audit with support from Jo Jones and Tim Pankhurst at Plantlife and John Secker from Glebe Farm. Thank you to them all for their expert and practical advice in the project. We are really excited to use the scheme this spring and summer when the margins are at their peak!
