Biscuit wheat performs well on The Fens

Two fields harvested on 27th & 28th July, yielded between 13.2-13.4 t/ha, and achieved between 13.3-13.6% moisture. The five-year farm average is 11.6 t/ha. “This does include two lower yielding seasons where we had very wet autumns and lower levels of radiation in the spring,” points out Mr Hoyles. Both fields followed vining peas and

Perth Open Day showcases exciting variety options for Scottish farmers

Tackling septoria with genetics “There is no doubt that the loss of chemistry, particularly chlorothalonil as in Bravo, has made the control of septoria much more difficult and the reality of this has been seen in the field this season. “We have also seen a breakdown of genetic resistance at differing levels in varieties with

How genetics protect oilseed rape yields at harvest

“Choosing to grow a variety with built in pod shatter resistance is one of the most important things you can do,” he says. “Last year, some crops were devastated by storms, whilst others appeared relatively unscathed, which showed very clearly, the value of pod shatter resistance.” Pod shatter is a natural process for seed dispersion

Reseed with added purpose

Why? Because a new sward of productive grasses will be far more efficient in using nitrogen than old swards. Feeding older grass swards where the grass is less responsive and there’s a higher proportion of weeds is wasteful in comparison. As an example, trials have shown that rough stalked meadow grass has a yield response

Sowing a forage crop and taking a ‘cereal break’ is a win-win!

Forage crops – and any grazing livestock – add organic matter to the soils, which is especially valuable in nutrient depleted soils. Soil structure and condition warrants attention on many arable units, and rotations that include forage crops are more sustainable in the long run. Forage crops, such as; fast-growing brassica and root crops, and

Considering Conventional Oilseeds?

Selected conventional varieties also exhibit the good early vigour that will enable them to grow past the potential damage that can be caused by cabbage stem flea beetle, says Liam Wilkinson technical oilseed rape specialist, for plant breeders Limagrain UK. Conventional rape varieties account for 35 – 40% of all crops, a smaller proportion of

The hidden threat to Oilseed Rape

With oilseed rape prices up at £820/tonne in late April, it’s crucial to keep the plant as healthy as possible to reach its full yield potential, which includes the health of the stem. Stem health is an area that is often overlooked and can have a serious impact on gross output. The stem-based diseases of
