Join us to hear about current research being undertaken at Rothamsted Research's North Wyke campus in Devon into:

- Mitigating agricultures unintended consequences on water quality
- The impact of different vegetation in riparian buffer strips on hydrology and water quality
The morning will also include a visit to the North Wyke Farm Platform to learn how this highly instrumented farm-scale experiment is being used to assess the impact of different land management interventions on water quality and how this work is being extended to the wider Taw catchment.
