In a season of many challenges join us this year as we review the leading wheat varieties currently undergoing assessment at our Cauldshiel Trial site with Dr Steve Hoad.
SRUC Crop Specialist, Fiona Burnett, will be discussing how our fungicide programmes are adapting to optimise on new chemistry now available and SRUC’s Lorna Cole and Henry Criessen will be taking a closer look at Integrated Pest Management developments and the ecology of beneficial insects as pollinators.
To conclude the event, SAC Consulting’s Rural Business Consultant, Julian Bell, will be looking ahead to the marketing prospects for this year’s wheat and barley crops.
