As arable farmers strive to reduce costs of production to combat volatility and possible loss of farm subsidy, one of the key strategies is to maximise yield to spread those costs. With yields plateauing over recent years, the ADAS YEN programme seeks to explore new science and cultivate sharing of best practice to raise average yields towards the crop’s genetic potential in any given growing location.
This conference will review the latest findings and hear from 2 practitioners who are putting theory into practice.
