Biosolutions Event, 9th May 2019

2021-06-09T11:56:46+01:00
In May, Crop Health North featured at the Centre for Crop Health and Protection’s key event on Agricultural BioSolutions hosted by Stockbridge Technology Centre in Selby.

The agricultural biosolution market has seen continual growth over the past few years for both biopesticides (plant protection products) and biostimulants (crop nutrition). However, there is still a need to optimise their use, particularly for arable crops. Major gaps exist in research relating to early stage discovery and screening of new candidates, large scale production, formulation and application. Developments with precision agriculture with decision support systems, pre-symptomatic detection and localised application are expected to improve their performance and cost effectiveness.

Addressing some of the key issues, Crop Health and Protection (CHAP), one of the four Centres for Agricultural Innovation, brought together leading scientists with state-of-the-art facilities, to help drive research and innovation, to transform crop systems.

Facilitated by operational group member, Dr Roma Gwynn, Crop Health North was cited as a good example of a farmer driven project.

Drilling preparations at the NU Farms, 16th October 2017

2021-06-09T12:02:00+01:00
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.
