The article focuses on a new decision tree produced by the Farming and Wildlife Conservation Trust in Great Britain which states that delaying the cultivation or spraying off rotational fallow land for as long as possible are the keys to managing it most successfully for environmental benefit. The decision tree produced by Farmers and Wildlife Advisory Group and Greater Walker Community Trust takes growers through the management options that these rule changes allow and gives advice on how best to manage fallow land for the good of the environment.
