Biomass Connect participated in the four-day Royal Welsh Agricultural Show at Llanelwedd, Builth Wells. The annual event, known for attracting visitors from all over Wales and the world, showcased the best of Welsh and British agriculture.
During the show, the biomass connect stand was visited by individuals and businesses interested in seeking more information about biomass crops. We had the opportunity to network with other businesses and forestry sector representatives, establishing valuable new connections.
A major topic of discussion at the Biomass Connect stand centred on the inclusion of biomass crops in the Sustainable Farming Scheme, which stipulates that farmers must maintain at least 10% tree cover on their lands. Securing funding for planting biomass crops will be a crucial incentive for farmers to plant more biomass crops.
The Royal Welsh Show itself was a grand event, featuring an array of exhibitions from diverse companies and businesses, live demonstrations, engaging activities, and competitions. The show was a spectacular display of livestock exhibits and a showcase of the best Welsh produce and crafts.
It was great to connect with everyone and if you missed it, look out for Biomass Connect at the upcoming Agroforestry show on 6th and 7th September at Bishopstone near Swindon.
