Elsoms and AHDB Open Day featuring Arable Connections

Join Elsoms Seeds and AHDB at the Spalding trials site to see the Recommended List trials, demonstrations and discuss varieties, technical updates and the supply chain with the experts on hand.

There will be the opportunity to see:

  • Winter Wheat Recommended List trials – untreated, high input and lodging trials, no farm input trial available
  • Elsoms’ wheat varieties and variety development plots

Demonstrators will be on hand to take you through the varieties and provide insight into their ratings and yield outlook for the year ahead.

Technical guidance will also be available on a range of topics including IPM, BYDV, CSFB, soils, markets, Farmbench and business resilience.

The Crop Health And Protection (CHAP) mobile laboratory will be attending this event to demonstrate in-field testing for target site and non-target site resistance in black-grass. The team will demonstrate the technology on the day and discuss how the technology could be used for other types of testing, for example resistance in other areas of crop protection (insecticides/fungicides) and pathogen detection.

Attendees are encouraged to bring along samples of black-grass from their farms for testing either during the event or soon afterwards.
