Foreword

What a year 2018 turned out to be! Weather wise we had a very late winter and spring. Most notably, the very cold ‘Beast from the East’ - followed by one of the hottest summers on record. Of course, these events put additional pressure on food crop production but have also had an influence on conservation crop establishment. It has showed there is the need for a more detailed look at seed mixtures and to refine the optimum sowing dates to help the crops produce their maximum potential. This was highlighted at our trial site near Lincoln, where spring sown brassicas suffered, whilst June-sown grain sorghum and millet-based mixtures loved the sun and will finish the year looking really good. If your ELS or HLS scheme finishes this year, there are four simplified options available, to help you join the Countryside Stewardship Scheme – see page 2 for further details.
