AHDBs final field walk of the season will be hosted at Somerby Top farm in North Lincolnshire. This walk will feature a season overview from Dr. Mark Statham, in which updates will be provided concerning nutrition trials conducted by NIAB CUF. Mark will also explore the effects of varietal determinacy in relation to fertilizer regimes and factors that influence tuber number in potatoes, such as the soil conditions.

Burn-off demonstrations

Graham Tomalin of VCS Agronomy will also be attending the field walk, and information concerning the burn off trials using herbicide plots will be provided. Graham will demonstrate how the 26 varieties planted for this trial react to the use of different chemicals.

Both Mark and Graham will both be available for discussion and to provide advice for growers as this challenging season comes to a close.

We hope you can make our final walk of the season, as your input and discussion are invaluable to our organization and provide us with essential information on the issues you face.
