Were they ever actually available to order unlike on information sheet ? No BTS3020, BTS5770 or KWS Evallota
Waste your time looking through price list / recommended list then go online to fill it in and not available on day one.!!
Gone for non cruiser as dont like all the restrictions going forward with cropping and cover crops.

First we knew about seed ordering was an email yesterday @ 10:35am. If the earliest you could order was @ 10:00am and varieties are a first come first served basis, everybody should have been informed before 10:00am to make it fair. Come on British Sugar/NFU Sugar.

Very small quantities of the 3020 and 5770 varieties apparently.
All gone by 10:30 yesterday.
So I'm drilling the same variety for the 3rd year. No cruiser. Will drill last week of Feb if conditions are good and seed is in the shed.

In their defence they did send out a mail shot the week before saying this would happen. I’d check your contact preferences with grower services if you didn’t get it.

This is the equivalent in size to all 219 current National Reserves.

The aim of the projects is to deliver nature recovery at a landscape scale, helping to tackle biodiversity loss, climate change and improve public health and well-being.
