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.
