Limagrain UK’s grass seed manager Ian Misselbrook also adds that improving reseeding programmes and considering other forages will better prepare them for fluctuating weather patterns. “The cold, wet spring in 2018 delayed turnout and grass growth,” he says. “Many livestock producers ran out of forages and were desperately hoping for a good grass growing season
“While some varieties are more prone than others, lodging in maize is fortunately a reasonably rare occurrence,” he explains. “This year it seems to be more of a problem with varieties, usually resistant to lodging, being affected.” Mr Camplin says that the increased incidence of lodging is due to the combination of the wet spring
Striving for higher wheat yields has meant a slight trend towards later maturing varieties that stay greener for longer sitting at the top of AHDB Recommended List. The trade-off is potential management issues in certain situations and, when twinned with doubts over the future of pre-harvest glyphosate applications, highlights a need to place increased importance
Grain distilling, biscuit making and animal feed are the key end uses for wheat in northern Britain, so soft wheats often dominate drilling plans and three candidates from Limagrain are sparking interest from the seed trade.

“In what has been a really challenging season to get yields like this from a variety the first time we have grown it is tremendous. It’s one of the boldest samples I have seen in a wheat since we grew Oakley back in 2008 producing a specific weight of 84.” Mr Lamyman chose to grow
With maize harvest looking to be at least two weeks earlier in many parts of the country he says it is important to focus on harvesting their maize in optimum conditions. Mr Richmond says there are two main reasons why the maize harvest should be significantly earlier this year. The first is the season where,
Mezzo Lucerne is an exceptionally high yielding Lucerne variety, brand new to the UK market.

A dormancy rating of 3.6 means that Mezzo can be considered for more northerly areas of the UK
Many farmers started the season with empty silage clamps and although the silage maize harvest is likely to be much earlier than usual, farmers may be looking for other solutions to their shortage of forage. To this end we’ve formulated a new “Emergency Forage” grass mixture, which is detailed below, along with some other forage options available
Marshal Lucerne has been successfully grown in the UK for many years.

A dormancy rating of 4.3 gives it the ideal balance
Since the withdrawal of neonicotinoid seed dressings, rapeseed producers have been solely reliant on pyrethroid insecticide applications to control the pest. However, resistance to pyrethroids is making chemical control unreliable, so growers are manipulating drill date to avoid peak adult beetle migration and using higher seed rates to dilute feeding damage and ensure adequate plants
