TRIPLE WINS FOR DSV VARIETIES IN 2018 ADAS YIELD ENHANCEMENT NETWORK (YEN)

DSV varieties have come top in the overall wheat and oilseed rape production categories in the 2018 ADAS Yield Enhancement Network (YEN) initiative with a win for the highest yield in the oilseed rape trials section too.

EXPANDING WHEAT, OILSEED RAPE AND MAIZE RANGES ON DSV’S CROPTEC 2018 STAND

New varieties of wheat, oilseed rape and forage joined DSV’s established portfolio of wheat, OSR and cover crops on their stand at CropTec 2018.

COMPANION CROPS IN OILSEED RAPE

What are the benefits of this new approach?

Drilling a companion crop or seed mixture alongside arable crops is nothing new. As yet however, this approach has not been widely used in traditional cropping and especially not in oilseed rape. Companion planting in OSR has two main objectives. The primary objective is to reduce nitrogen fertiliser inputs by using legumes to fix atmospheric nitrogen. The secondary objective focuses on repelling or distracting insect OSR pests.

CHOOSING OPTIMUM VARIETIES FOR SEPTEMBER DRILLING

With recent rain loosening soil and providing much needed moisture for parched ground, growers that have held back on drilling oilseed rape now have near perfect conditions for establishment, says Sarah Hawthorne of DSV.

HOW TO ACHIEVE SUCCESS WITH SEPTEMBER-DRILLED OILSEED RAPE

Choose a variety with the right level of vigour, get your seedbed preparation right and pay attention to achieving the right plant population if you’re drilling into September, says Mike Mann of DSV UK Ltd.
