BBC World’s ‘Follow The Food’ visited Iain Gould, Senior Lecturer in Soil Science at the University of Lincoln and Lincolnshire Farmer, David Hoyles, who have been working together on a saline irrigation trial of potatoes.

The BBC team were very keen to see the trial site and meet David to discuss the issues of water and salinity in the region. They even managed to taste the produce!

You can meet Iain and David in Episode 4 on BBC’s Follow the Food by clicking on the photo below.

The SalFar trial is featured around the 15 minute mark. Enjoy!
