Afbeelding: maize web

Farmers from across the South West are invited to attend ForFarmers maize growers open day taking place at a demonstration site near Axminster on Monday 2nd October 2017.

Maize growers and livestock farmers have the opportunity to see maize hybrid varieties from the main breeders including KWS, Limagrain and Pioneer grown in the same location.

The open day is intended to help growers identify which hybrid varieties are best suited to their own location and circumstances, plus additionally suggest agronomic techniques that may help maximise yield and quality. Technical representatives from the plant breeders will be available throughout the day during tours of the plots.

The meeting is free to attend but please call Louise Woolacott on 07803 286852 to register attendance.
