The group submitted at least 1 grain sample of malting spring barley and they were analysed through the lab. The meeting will discuss the results and compare Nitrogen, Phosphorus, Sulphur, Manganese, Potassium Magnesium, Zinc and Copper against AHDB research minimum values that may affect yield. The group will then compare what trace elements they use and how much they apply. After identifying any deficiencies, we will try to identify any possible reason they are low such as soil conditions. Fertiliser applications will also be discussed. If you would like to know more about the group, please contact Derek Hanton on 01463 233266.
