    ESSENTIAL INFORMATION

    It may be advisable to have your soil analysed and ask one of our specialists to visit your shoot. To encourage wild UK birds it’s best to consider a broad range of seed bearing crops.


    Establishing a mix takes time and but it’s worth the effort. Ask the farmer/landowner about fertilizers, previous crops and soil types.


    Use farmyard manure wherever possible – especially on set-aside land.
