An event is being held in Penrith to give farmers advice on how to deal with saturated soil, after one of the wettest seasons in years.
Farmers will be told how to reduce the impact of wet weather on soil health, with the aim of allowing soil to drain, which will encourge more grass to grow.
They say that the right action taken on farm land can reduce the amount of soil and nutrients being washing into rivers and streams, benefiting the farmer and environment.
"We hope that this event and the advice it provides will help farmers with water-logged soils to make the best of a bad job after such a wet year, and bring benefits to their business as well as local rivers."
The event is being run by a partnership of organisations, including Cumbria Farm Environment Partnership, Rural Skills Cumbria, Eden Rivers Trust and Catchment Sensitive Farming.
