    Visitors at Carlisle RTCThe value of using a robust fungicide programme and selecting varieties with good disease resistance has been clearly demonstrated in Hutchinsons trials near Carlisle.

    Cereals_2019_Logo-Horizontal_Details_CMYKTrial results that reveal how to increase yields and improve profitability will be available to discuss at this year's Hutchinsons stand at Cereals.

    By comparing variably drilled wheat alongside a farm standard rate on spilt fields and taking them to yield, the statistically-valid work has proven that using Omnia Precision Agronomy can increase yields by an average of 0.6t/ha, worth £99/ha (based on wheat at £165/t). In this particular trial, costs of production were also reduced, by as much as £28/t, says Hutchinsons.

    Terramap is a soil scanning and mapping service available exclusively through Hutchinsons and Omnia. Terramap will be launched at Cereals.
