Conservation Agriculture

We at King Agricultural Contractors are passionate about conservation agriculture and the need to pursue a sustainable future through innovation.

There are three basic principles to conservation agriculture:

Minimise soil disturbance

Keep the soil covered year round

Have a diverse rotation

The aim is to build soil carbon, improve soil structure and enhance soil life.

One example of how we are achieving this aim on our own farms is direct drilling, in conjunction with cover cropping and application of organic manures.

Over time we are building soil structure, increasing our soils fertility and eventually reducing our weed burden and dependence on artificial fertilisers.

If we can help you learn more about conservation agriculture and our direct drilling service and how it could benefit your farm in reducing establishment costs and reducing weed burdens, then we would love to hear from you.

Contact us today to discuss your specific requirements.

Alternatively you can fill out the contact form and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

  • "King Agriculture have done most of the agricultural contract work on my farm for over 30 years. They always approach their work with a positive attitude. They are totally reliable, never let me down and we have an excellent working relationship."

    "Their machinery is spotlessly clean and up-to-date and their staff have always been cheery and helpful. They have readily adapted as I have thrown new challenges at them and they have rescued me when my machinery has broken down."

    "I do not hesitate to recommend this forward thinking agricultural contractor to anyone, small or large."

  • "They do all my combining with a fantastic self-levelling machine that works wonders on my sloping fields! They also drill all of my crops and trim my hedges. Their workmanship is fantastic and I would recommend them to anybody, they are very prompt and come when they are needed – Philip always sticks to his promises."

  • "I have used King Contracting for doing the wood chipping at Fir Farm and they have been great. They have always been on time, done a good job and have been happy to come at quite short notice." 

    Luke Wilson

  • "King Agriculture are friendly, helpful and efficient in their service to us. They are totally flexible, for example if weather is hindering work they will even come out on a Sunday to get the job done, I can not fault them at all." 

    Simon Viner

  • "I have used Jo for over 20 years and I think that alone says a lot about their service. I have been offered the same services from other companies but I won’t go anywhere else as Jo provides everything I need and they suit me down to the ground! I recommend them to many people."
