At Pye Group we value our environment and work hard to ensure that our farming systems operate at an environmental level beyond what is required by compliance.
We have a dedicated staff member actively managing consent conditions using CS-Vue software programme ensuring ongoing compliance with consent conditions.
All farms have farm environment plans and nutrient budgets to ensure responsible use of nutrients.
Together with our strategic fertiliser partner Ravensdown we have implemented a Proof of Placement Fertiliser System using technology to ensure spreading of fertiliser in the most efficient and accurate way. The system allows us to protect sensitive areas by creating buffer zones where fertiliser cannot be applied.
With most of our farms relying on irrigation it is vital that we use water efficiently. We do this by monitoring soil moisture content and on some properties using variable rate irrigation systems.
