AICC EXPERTS ON THE KNOWLEDGE TRAIL AT CEREALS

AICC EXPERTS ON THE KNOWLEDGE TRAIL AT CEREALS

18 May 2017

AICC members and colleagues from the James Hutton Institute will be available on the AICC stand at CEREALS to answer questions on Weeds, Disease, Nutrition and Soil structures as part of the Knowledge Trail.

Executive Members of AICC, Sean Sparling, Patrick Stephenson and Peter Brumpton will be on hand to talk about their approach to providing comprehensive on farm commercially independent advice to their clients.  They are all practising agronomists with an expert knowledge providing appropriate solutions to combat weed and disease issues in all arable crops.  The demonstration plots on the site illustrate the programmes that an independent crop consultant would use to overcome weed and disease pressure in the most cost effective way.  AICC members advise on approaching 50% of the UK Arable Advice market and representatives from the groupings of AICC members from across the UK will be available to answer your questions on agronomic issues for the season and going forward.

In addition, there will also be representatives from The James Hutton Institute whose vision is to be at the forefront of innovative and transformative science for sustainable management of land, crop and natural resources that supports thriving communities. There will be a demonstration of the effects of compaction on the resistance of soils to root growth through demonstrating penetrometer resistance. There will be tubes containing growing barley highlighting the impact of compaction on plant growth and the negative consequences on utilisation of nutrients.
