We staged our summer variety trial / technical meeting last week at Messrs Jack Buck Farms.
The event was very well attended not only with Nene members but with representatives from the seed trade and Greenvale. Nick Douglas GVAP procurement director gave a very interesting commercial update while Dennis Walsh gave us his thoughts on crop quality.
The siltland samples, in particular, looked very good and surprisingly bold. There were some interesting new varieties on display with Tyson, Malou, Soraya and Michelle the ones to catch the eye.
We would like to thank Jack Buck Farms and HA Overton for providing areas for our trials this year.
