Field/Arable land/Paddock wanted for rent in East/West Sussex


I am looking to rent land near to the Lancing/Steyning/Worthing/Shoreham/Brighton/Hove area. The land would be used to grow a small (primarily organic) flower farm for commercial use. Roughly 2 acres would be ideal, however if there happened to be a plot up to 5 acres this would be considered. A sunny position is essential (ideally shielded from overly excessive winds). Water access and road access would be handy. Any pointers would be very much appreciated!

Many thanks.

Early moves to target wild oats

Growers and agronomists now face the dilemma of an early application to remove competition from emerged wild oats, or holding off to allow more weeds to germinate.

Syngenta grassweeds technical manager, Georgina Wood, urges Axial Pro treatment as soon as conditions allow, once weeds are actively growing.

“That offers the chance to control wild oats more cost effectively at lower rates, whilst there is still the flexibility to tailor application rates up to 0.82 l/ha for larger or over wintered weeds and difficult situations.

“The variability of crops and situations this season means decisions for appropriate Axial Pro rates and application techniques will need to be made on a field-by-field basis,” she advised.
