On the CROPCO stand you can inspect demonstration plots of the early maturing Hybrid Wheat Hybiza and high performing Hyguardo; both ideal in blackgrass control strategies.
Also find out how CROPCO can be a valuable partner for independently minded farmers, crop consultants and buying groups, supplying high quality off-patent crop protection products throughout 'Arable England'.
Two new varieties of Hybrid Wheat exhibited in trial plots by CROPCO at the Cereals Event offer a solution to one of the main risks associated with effective blackgrass control. Delaying drilling winter wheat gives a consistent improvement in pre-emergence herbicide performance but later drilling also risks poorer crop establishment. Hybrid Wheat has the advantage of hybrid vigour, encouraging rapid emergence and robust development, giving reliable crop establishment regardless of autumn calendar date. There is thus no need for a significant increase in seed rates and plants are better placed to survive the winter.
