With just a month to go until Cereals, we attended the Crop Plot preview day and, alongside our sister publication Agronomist & Arable Farmer, interviewed the companies exhibiting their new varieties.
Will Compson, UK country manager for KWS, explained how the company will introduce a new circular crop plot design with segments at this year’s event, said to enable a more comprehensive view of the company’s wheats and barleys.
Highlights include the high yielding Group 4 wheat, Dawsum, which has proven a popular choice with farmers, alongside the two-row winter barley KWS Tardis.
“Last year there was limited seed but this autumn it is likely to be the most widely sown 2-row,” explained Mr Compson.
The Cereals Event will be held near Duxford, Cambridgeshire on 8-9 June 2022. For more information or to purchase tickets visit the relaunched website at www.cerealsevent.co.uk.
