Looking for farmers around Gloucestershire/Worcestershire area interested in hosting OSR trials.


Dear all,

This might be a long shot but worth a try. I work as a field trialist for Staphyt ltd based in Bicester, Oxfordshire where we carry out efficacy and residue small plot trials to test crop protection products in order to help support research/registration of products. We are looking for farmers around Gloucestershire/Worcestershire area interested in hosting a potential fungicide project in oilseed rape against phoma and light leaf spot disease. So, we are looking for osr varieties such as acacia, architect, ballad, crome e.t.c. Compensation will be paid for loss of crop and use of land.

Please do contact me on here or email me ([email protected]) if you’re interested or know anyone and would like more detail. We are always looking to expand our farmers network to cover maximum crops and targets so if can’t help with this project but would be interested in future trial projects in different crops i.e wheat, barley, oats, potatoes then please do get in touch.

Thank you in advance,
