Developing your knowledge and skills


Oilseed rape establishment

There are many factors to consider when establishing a crop of oilseed rape from drilling date to variety choice. David Langton from Agrii picks out the main points.


Combine efficiency

With today's rocketing input costs, it's vital to manage your harvest as efficiently as possible to maximise your returns. Edward Miller, Sales Training Coordinator for Claas, looks at how this can be improved.


Grassland management

Maximising the amount of grass cows harvest themselves is a balance between making sure there is enough to eat, and maintaining the quality needed to support target milk production. Piers Badnell of DairyCo dispenses best advice.


Turnip yellow virus

Better understanding of this virus could help growers significantly increase yields. Mark Stevens, lead scientist at the British Beet Research Organisation (BBRO) and Caroline Nicholls, research and knowledge transfer manager at HGCA summarise the latest understanding of the disease.
