AICC AT CEREALS 2016

AICC AT CEREALS 2016

26 May 2016

Highest spends don't necessarily mean highest yields. 

Challenging disease scenarios’ with rising input costs are a grower’s biggest challenge to margins this year – but do they need to be? This is the over-riding message from the AICC at this year’s Cereals Event.

If you are spending way over £100 per hectare on your cereal fungicide programme you need to ask the question if this is money well spent, or if levels of disease control and yields alike could have been maintained with less expense, says Sean Sparling, AICC.

At the AICC stand this year, a range of spring and winter crop plots will demonstrate how it is possible to maintain yields whilst managing inputs at realistic costs. The question will be posed as to whether farmers are best served by allowing best practice and good science to be the driver for production rather than highest spend. 

AICC will be running pop-in sessions at 11am and 2pm each day to discuss the visible differences in programmes demonstrated by the plots.
