It’s nearly time for Kington Show…

You could almost be forgiven for wondering if we had even had a summer this year but the seasons continue to roll on and autumn is drawing nearer.

Our last event of the summer, Kington Show is on 12th September this year. E & J Solutions will once again be there, partnered with Field Options. We are focussing on the importance of good soil in the production of crops and livestock this year after the success of last year’s drive on analysis. We hope to see many of you there for tea and home-made cake!

Maize trials in north Herefordshire

The Wye & Usk Foundation, Field Options Ltd, Cranfield University and E & J Solutions are hosting a maize trials event in north Herefordshire on Thursday 4th December.

The trial aims to compare cost-effective over-winter management options which are of benefit to both the grower and the environment. The event will be an opportunity to see the trial plots including:

  • Undersown Italian Ryegrass – how did it cope with traffic during maize harvest?
  • Rye sown post-harvest – how has it established compared to undersown IRG?
  • Cross slope cultivations – has this stopped run-off downslope?

If you’re interested in coming to the event, please contact Kate Adams on 07766 330959.
