  • According to John Pelham, Anderson’s business consultant, the ability of farm businesses to identify and address loss making areas is key to improving resilience against future threats, such as Brexit. Visitors to the Hutchinsons stand (926) at this year’s Cereals Event will have the opportunity to see how the company’s Omnia Precision software enables this approach, with the launch of two innovative new features, yield performance mapping and cost of production mapping.

  • What cereal and OSR variety options should you be considering for planting in autumn 2017, especially as so many new ones having found their way onto the AHDB recommended list? David Bouch – Hutchinsons Seed Manager – considers some of the varieties that stand out and could be worth trying.  David has chosen a range of options according to the output types that you might find most suitable to grow according to your farm location, soil type and climate.

  • ‘Blackgrass audit’ at Cereals

    20-Apr-2017 by: Certis UK Certis

    The Cereals event, in June, provides a fantastic opportunity for farmers to speak to experts about undertaking a blackgrass review, ensuring that plans are firmly in place to hit the ground running in autumn.

  • OMEX Agriculture has launched a novel crop health promoter in a foliar formulation based on copper and zinc called Zynergy, which complements the fungicidal and bactericidal activity of agrochemicals when used as part of an integrated crop management programme.

    The OMEX research and development team assisted by university researchers and independent trials organisations have identified the Zynergy formulation as an effective and synergistic additive to crop protection programmes particularly against rust, potato blight and downy mildew in a wide range of crops.

  • With approaching 50% of the UK’s arable acres under the advice of an independent crop consultant, it is clear that independent agronomy is stronger than ever. However access to extensive independent trials results and innovative technology that have no commercial bias, is key to being at the forefront of delivering this technical excellence.  This is what the Association of Independent Crop Consultants (AICC) and its member agronomists stand for.


  • On many arable farms today, alongside a need to choose arable crops that will deliver on farm in terms of both yield and quality, rotational and political pressures as well as sporting considerations have driven an increase in a whole range of forage, soil improvement, environmental and game cover crops.

  • Pick up the AHDB Nutrient Management Guide at Cereals 2017

    Visitors to Cereals 2017 will be among the first to get access to the AHDB Nutrient Management Guide (RB209).

    Scheduled for release in May, the new publication will be available at the event (which takes place on 14 and 15 June 2017 at Boothby Graffoe, Lincolnshire) from the AHDB Cereals & Oilseeds stand (919).

  • Cereals 2017: Are you ready for 2020?

    How to get farming businesses to and through Brexit will be a key talking point on the AHDB Cereals & Oilseeds stand (919) at Cereals 2017.

    The event, which takes place on 14 and 15 June 2017 at Boothby Graffoe, Lincolnshire, sees AHDB host several ‘debates and updates’ to explore threats and opportunities facing the arable sector.

    The debates will provide a forum for in-depth discussion on two key issues (soil health and Brexit), whereas the updates will see industry experts give rapid-fire thoughts on the hottest topics in agronomy.

  • Growers to get first look at Dow's Zypar

    10-Apr-2017 by: Ben Pike, Eve Communications Dow AgroSciences

    Growers and agronomists can learn more about the breakthrough chemistry behind Dow AgroSciences’ brand new broad-leaved weed herbicide Zypar at Cereals (stand 618).

  • Don't neglect soil health this spring

    07-Apr-2017 by: Mr Tim Kerr - Hutchinsons Fertiliser Manager Hutchinsons

    In a letter to the State Governors in 1937, the 32nd President of the Unites States of America, Franklin D Roosevelt wrote “a Nation that destroys its soil destroys itself.”  Tim Kerr looks at key nutrient management in soils and their impact on crop yields, especially Potash (K). Early spring is as an ideal time for applying potash, so it is a good idea to check the levels of plant available K in your soil by having a sample analysed and ensure that sufficient K has been, or is, applied to meet the crop potential.

  • Wheat growers attending this year’s Cereals Event have another good reason to opt for Senova’s popular hard feed variety Costello.

    Latest results from the disease monitoring project UKCPVS show that Costello is one of only three recommended winter wheat varieties to maintain its guard against yellow rust at all growth stages, despite enormous diversity in the yellow rust population. Costello is already recognised by growers and their advisers for its combination of high yields, outstanding grain quality and lower growing costs.

    To find out more about Costello and for the chance to win a tonne of Costello seed, visit the Senova stand, number 913, at Cereals ’17.
