Breeding houses collaborate to exhibit and unveil their newest offerings
TWO variety open days at Mill Farm, Caythorpe near Grantham, Lincolnshire, on September 11th and 12th provided an opportunity to view tubers and foliage just prior to desiccation and enabled some detailed agronomic and technical discussions to take place.
Tim and Jo Ward of GR Ward & Sons hosted the open days and breeding station trials which attracted a good attendance, in line with previous seasons, despite the obvious difficulties associated with COVID-19.
Multiple breeding houses collaborated to exhibit, so visitors were able to gain significant and geographically relevant information over the two days.
