Farm Advisory Service (FAS) Open days - Trial open evening

3 Jul 2018 4pm - 3 Jul 2018 6pm

These events are funded through the Farm Advisory Service and will cover crop health, business efficiency and biodiversity themes. Topics include crop protection, nitrogen and fertiliser management, weed control and crop variety choices – all key components of Integrated Pest Management (IPM). The trials themselves are funded by a range of grant providers including Scottish Government, AHDB, EU and industry. In addition there will discussions on alternative crops and game cover management. The events are aimed at all those who are interested in cereals and their management and offer key advice for autumn planting decisions.  


This event at Drumalbin Farm, Lanark ML12 6PH, lets you look at our spring and winter barley trials and we also have winter wheat varieties demonstrated. Disease pressure is high at this site which really puts pressure on varieties and fungicide treatments. Come and judge for yourself the differences between old and new fungicides and varieties. BASIS and NRoSO points will be available. Tea and light refreshments will be available.


Venue: Drumalbin Farm, Lanark ML12 6PH
