Over the past number of months our experts here at Germinal have been combining their specialist agricultural knowledge to produce G–Source, an easily accessible online education resource offering guidance and best practice tips on a range of farm and forage management topics.

Over the past number of months our experts here at Germinal have been combining their specialist agricultural knowledge to produce G–Source, an easily accessible online education resource offering guidance and best practice tips on a range of farm and forage management topics.

G–Source is responsive across all mobile, tablet and desktop devices for use in–field, from the farm office or at home. G–Source is launched with 11 core guides covering areas such as reseeding grassland, improving soil fertility and growing forage brassicas. Information is presented as easy to follow video animations, printable infographics or detailed text guides.

G–Source also has a library of advice videos called G–Talks from our knowledgeable and experienced agricultural team. G–Talks will be updated regularly and built into a comprehensive resource that a farmer, student or farm worker can tap into when seeking advice to help maximise returns from forage.

“From our own Forage Use Survey in 2016 and wider industry insight, we know that there are lost opportunities to make better use of homegrown feed resources,” says Ben Wixey, National Agricultural Sales Manager for Germinal GB. Ben continues “Our survey of 550 livestock farmers tells us that reseeding rates are way below what would be required to achieve optimum performance from grassland, and use of alternative forages remains limited. One of the main reasons given for not making better use of homegrown forage is a lack of knowledge, so we have created G–Source to help bridge the gap. G–Source is designed to help livestock farmers increase their use of homegrown forage, and ultimately drive down their costs of production.”

William Gilbert , Group Managing Director of Germinal, enthused “We are delighted to share G–Source with farmers as an all–inclusive hub for good farm management. We aim to bring the best quality products to our customers and with the aid of G–Source farmers can reap the rewards both in maximised output and financial returns.
