Each year, Bartholomews undertakes an extensive independent range of both cereal varieties and crop protection trials across the Southern region.
Under local soil and climate conditions, we aim to evaluate how cereal varieties perform under varied fungicide programmes. As leading suppliers of crop protection products in the region, Bartholomews has access to new chemistry actives to evaluate prior to market launch.
We are currently running over 15 trials across the south most will be taken to yield. This year we are looking at;
Fertiliser use efficiency on winter wheat
Potash sources on both winter wheat and spring barley
New chemistry (fungicide) winter wheat and winter barley
Blackgrass solutions in winter wheat and spring barley
BYDV varietal resistance
BYDV product choice (including new chemistry) and timing
Winter wheat varietal work
