Video: UK Farmer’s View “No-Till And Glyphosate”


“A look at our notill farming system and its benefits to the wider environment after the very mislead decision not to re-register Glyphosate in the EU Parliament yesterday [Oct 25, 2017].”

 Jake Freestone is the farm manager at Overbury Farms in Tewkesbury, England– 1560 hectares of wheat, barley, oilseed rape, peas, and runs 1,000 breeding ewes. The farm has converted 90% of the land to zero tillage, and is also a LEAF Demonstration Farm (Linking Environment and Farming).

Jake attended the 2016 Global Farmer Roundtable and is a member of the Global Farmer Network.

Jake chronicles activity at the farm on YouTube and recently posted why he strongly feels glyphosate is an intergral part of farming and conservation.

Related to his recent video, earlier in the year he posted Glyphosate – A Key Ingredient at his blog Farmer Jake, which gives a bit more in-depth look at the practical aspects of Integrated Farm Management.
