AC/DC Working with Farmers

AC DC: The Nutrient and Soil Management project, West Wales

Working directly with farmers across a number of catchments in West Wales, this project takes a hands on approach to improving water quality by offering advice and financial support to farmers.

This joint project with Afonydd Cymru (Welsh Rivers Trust) and Dyr Cymru (Welsh Water) has been modelled on the successful work by the farm team of the Wye and Usk Foundation, bringing together pragmatic and cost-effective actions to achieve improvements to water quality.
