In 1993 field margins were one of the most significant uncropped habitats in lowland English farmland which could be exploited for nature conservation. As well as forming extensive networks of landscape corridors, they are potentially very rich habitats in their own right. Post-war agricultural intensification resulted in severe degradation, as well as loss, of field boundary habitats, resulting in both loss of wildlife interest and severe weed control problems. This pre Natural England document is being published as part of our work to share our evidence and make it available online.
