Colin Chappell is an award-winning arable farmer from Northern Lincolnshire. Currently, custodian to 645ha of heavy clay loams in the Ancholme Valley, he runs a wide and diverse rotation with less productive land growing Miscanthus. 5.5% of the farm is dedicated to environmental measures, and every year around 300 schoolchildren visit to learn where their food comes from. Passionate about soil health, his current focus is on nutrient use efficiencies and decreasing his carbon footprint. As an ex-AHDB monitor farmer, he cites knowledge exchange as key to his progressive approach to agriculture.
