September Is the perfect time to see how the crop has performed under the various demonstration regimes. We’ll be digging plenty of samples so you can judge for yourself.

Join us on this farm walk (and bus ride) which will be an informal group discussion where we will respond to the requirements and interests of the group. Numbers will be strictly limited.

We will be reviewing the effect of irrigation regimes on scab control in both processing and prepack varieties. There will also be some results from the nutrition trials. It remains to be seen if the effect of different treatments will be obvious at this time. Importantly the work on cultivations and bed profiles is best seen at this time when the crop has been burnt down.

  • What was the long term effects of these cultivations and what can we learn for next season?

Final yield and observations on the PCN trials will provide the last piece of this jigsaw.

There will also be opportunity at this event for attendees to put forward suggestions for next year’s trials
