Wakelyns Agro Forestry

 


There are six alley cropping systems, each of about 2 ha, in which rows of trees ('production hedges'), orientated North-South, are separated by cropping alleys. The cropping alleys contain the organic rotation, which means that, for example, in Willow Pond,  2010 is potato year. This will be followed by clover ley (2011/12), then cereals (2013), clover ley (2014/15), then back to potatoes in 2016. Each of the other fields is at a different stage of the same rotation. This helps to maximise fertility and minimise carry-over and spread of weeds, pests and diseases.
