With the UK climate seeing the extremes of both rain and sun over the course of the year, sustainable water management has never been more important to farmers. 

In recent years the UK has seen a sharp rise in the extremity of winter flooding and summer droughts, both of which can have a detrimental impact on the growth of, and ability to maintain crops, as well as making large areas of land unusable for housing livestock.

The reason water management has such a significant effect on crop growth is because the movement of water is directly linked to nutrient loading. Even during standard rainy spells, nutrients can run off from fields on the surface or seep through, sometimes even reaching the groundwater, which can impact soil health. 

To maintain healthy soil for crop growth and prevent erosion, it’s crucial to take measures towards water management; it can make a huge difference in maintaining a sustainable agricultural system that maximises land usage throughout the year.
