Field boundaries

Field margin (Oxford) Martin Warren

Field boundaries perform important functions for the farm, but also provide valuable habitat for wildlife. Well-managed boundary features can support a range of wildlife, as well as connecting habitats across the landscape.

The priority for field boundaries is to protect them and their margins from farm inputs which impact wildlife, such as pesticide and fertiliser, and maintain a varied structure to support a diverse range of species.
