Farmers from across Cornwall are invited to attend a ForFarmers maize growers meeting, in conjunction with plant breeding company Limagrain, taking place at The Alverton Hotel, in Truro, on Tuesday 19th September 2017.

At the event maize growers and livestock farmers will have the opportunity to hear technical experts discussing the latest information on nutrition, harvesting and maize variety selection.

There will also be a ‘maize clinic’ where growers can bring their own whole maize plants (3-6 plants, representative of the field) for NIR analysis in order to estimate dry matter and harvest date. The results of the analysis will also show potential quality characteristics for starch and digestibility.

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