  1. Spring barley agronomy must be focussed towards the beginning of the season to maximise the yield and quality achieved from a comparatively short growing season.

    Sowing “realistic” seed rates for individual field conditions and building nutrition early to support strong plant development were fundamental building blocks for a successful barley crop, Farmacy’s Bob Bulmer told growers at a recent Farmacy Norfolk event at St George’s Distillery near Thetford.

  2. Linking precision technology and agronomy has led to steadily increasing yields for one Lincolnshire grower.

    Using precision technology to gain a better understanding of what is happening in every part of the field in order to target inputs and make better informed and profitable management decisions is an approach that Farmacy agronomist Charles Wright strongly supports.
