ENAJ press trip in Russia

Join us to Russia! ENAJ and Barenbrug present the first in a worldwide series of Field Workshops: Healthy soil as a building block for a circular economy

Learn all you need to know as an Ag journalist on soil health, the current situation, the consequences and the different solutions.

Join us on this exploration: what does soil health mean in general in Europe, worldwide and what is the practise in Russia? What are its facts and myths, how do mixed farms deal with this, and what is the importance of grass in this whole matter? The workshop consists partly of presentations and interviews and partly of ‘practice’, so farm visits.

Ruminants such as cows, sheep and goats turn grass and herbs into milk and meat. That can be done a lot smarter with more knowledge of grass, soil and grazing techniques.

The importance of soil health is still heavily underestimated. Actually the soil is the first stomach of the cow. That’s where it happens!

Preliminary program: we will meet specialists from Moscow University, representatives of the government, farmers, fellow-journalists and representatives of the Ag business. And of course we will visit the famous Red Square.

The Field Workshop will be held in the vicinity of Moscow. Arrival Monday August 12 and leave Thursday August 15. So two whole days, including a dinner on the night before and a breakfast on the day after. Participation in this event will cost only 200 euros!
