About Strategic Centre for Field Vegetables Scotland - Brassicas

  • East of Scotland Growers Ltd (ESG) is a farmers' co-operative founded in 1987.
  • Based at Cupar in Fife they specialise in broccoli and cauliflowers.
  • AHDB is also working with East of Scotland based Kettle Produce, who grow brussels sprouts and swedes, to carry out the trials.

A series of four trials will be conducted over the brassica growing season at fields managed by East of Scotland Growers at Balmullo, Fife.

The grower-led trials will look at methods of preventing downy mildew in cauliflower and the impact of bio-stimulants on crop health and vigour.

They will also look at herbicide screening pre and post-planting, as well as the use of herbicides that have shown promise in AHDB’s SCEPTREplus trials.
