We are launching a national wheat yield competition to help growers maximise crop potential by combining the best agronomic practices and innovative ideas.

The theoretical yield potential of wheat across the UK is about 20t/ha. But the average farm yield is approximately 40% of that figure. To help close the gap, the Yield Max competition will encourage entrants to push their crops harder than current farm practice, by examining key areas such as establishment, nutrition, disease control and bioscience and adopting appropriate agronomy.

There are several great national regional prizes on offer, but it's not just the winners who stand to gain. Judges will evaluate the economic and practical viability of the systems and pull the findings together to highlight best practices that can be readily implemented on farm to drive future crop output.




Please fill in the below information to be in with a chance of winning and to receive a free measuring quadrat



1. Competition entry is open to all commercial wheat growers in the UK

2. All yield results will be corrected to 15% moisture content

3. Competition entry is via the above registration form

4. Crops entered must consist of a single winter wheat in the variety that is commercially available (as C1 or C2 seed) in the UK. Farm-saved seed is permitted

5. The biggest potential category winner will be judged on the best percentage improvement over the farms 5-year average wheat yield

6. Closing date for entries is 30th November 2018

7. Yields can be taken from whole for part fields but must be a minimum of 2ha in a continuous run. Area must be measured accurately by hand, by recognised mapping software or GPS co-ordinates.

8. Yields must be confirmed by a suitable combine yield monitor print outs, yield map, or by calibrated weighbridge.

9. Entrants will be asked to cut a similar area of non-competition wheat from the same or a nearby field to provide an indication of yield effect between on-farm and competition crop husbandry techniques.

Forage management: Maximising current and future resources

Nationwide, forage supplies are believed to be 20-30% below normal, and up to 40% in certain areas, following the exceptionally dry summer With forage in tight supply this autumn, national seeds manager Nigel Walley looks at what can be done on farm to help alleviate the situation.


Grassweed Control - Hitting low dormancy blackgrass hard

Blackgrass that emerges with autumn-sown cereals is 10 x more competitive than that which appears later in the season. There is likely to be a significant early flush this autumn, hitting it hard and early will be key to control.
