The SRUC trials site at Cauldshiel Farm, Humbie Haddington, EH41 4JR in East Lothian will be on show on Thursday 29th June, kindly hosted by Keith and Scott Maxwell.
Winter wheat, winter barley and spring barley varieties will be demonstrated, giving clues as to promising new varieties for each market, and highlighting the strengths and weaknesses in disease resistance and other agronomic features for a huge number of cultivars. A range of fungicide programmes will be demonstrated to show where the expenditure is best targeted and how products compare. A selection of green cover plots will be on show and should attract interest for their value to wildlife of varying sorts and compliance with the EFA. BASIS and NRoSO points will be available.
The free event starts at 5.15 pm with tours setting off at 6.00pm. A barbecue and refreshments will be provided at the start. For more information contact the Edinburgh SAC Consulting office on 0131 603 7520 or the St Boswells SAC Consulting office on 01835 823 322.
