Grass & Legumes Open Day
Field Options held our annual Grass and Legumes trials open day at Harper Adams University on 14th July. The open day was an opportunity to see our grass mixture trials and to learn from specialists how to optimise soil structure, manage and utilise grass, clover and Lucerne.
The day was well attended and there were some good discussions over lunch. If you couldn't make it but are interested in the results or future visits, please contact our trials specialist, Mark.
New Grass Trials - the latest data
Field Options' core grass mixtures are just entering their 3rd year of trials at Harper Adams University: the 2nd series of mixture trials is proving just as interesting as the first.
All mixtures have out-performed the controls for each group by about 1t dry matter/ha/year. Some long-term leys out-yielded 2-3 year leys in the 2nd season by producing 2.5t/ha more than the Perennial Ryegrass control, AberDart.
The data from the trials is summarised alongside each of the product descriptions in our 2016 Grass & Forage Guide, giving you proof of performance.
