Kindly hosted by Hobson Farming and the Scampston Hall Estate, this will be a chance for growers to view each of the treatments first hand and their impact on crop quality.
- Standard Straw
- Reduced straw plus poly cover
- Re-used closed cell foam
- Cellulose fibre
- Cellulose fibre plus poly cover
Of particular interest will be the cellulose fibre which has been performing as well as the other treatments but is fully saturated. It is thought that it is effectively protecting the crop via both a thermal mass effect and trapped air.
