Nafferton and Cockle Park farms successfully drilled for winter wheat earlier this week.
The two wheat varieties the trial will focus on are Skyfall and Leeds. The thousand grain weight (TGW) for Skyfall is 54g and Leeds is 51g. Both have 98% germination. The trials will run 6 replicates on each site of the three sites, Nafferton farm, Stockbridge Technology Centre and Cockle Park farm.
