Getting the best out of high yielding Evolution wheat

Limagrain hasproduced a brand new, in-depth, technical husbandry guide for its top yieldingGroup 4 wheat, Evolution.

Evolution offersgrowers a very high yielding feed wheat without the disease threat that isoften associated with this sector, and significantly, it is also a varietysuitable for sowing in all regions of the UK, over differing sowing dates, soiltypes and the challenging second/continuous wheat situation. 

Do you know whatthe best seed rate is for Evolution in an early sowing slot and did you knowthat the variety can be drilled through to late February? What are the yieldbenefits of a high input fungicide programme over less comprehensive regime andas a grower how can you consider what the best spend is to generate the highestyield results? Should the variety be grown as a second wheat?

It is criticalfor growers to have access to all of the available information from appropriateseed treatments to correct seed rates through to responses to PGRs andfungicide inputs in order to recognise the best position for the variety onfarm,  says Ron Granger, arabletechnical manager for Limagrain.

As breeders weare best placed to offer this information using data collected from a range ofour own farmer and independent trials, distributor partners as well as usingthe HGCA RL trial data,

All of thecharacteristics and performance required for these sowing slots are outlined inthis guide which is available to download from the website www.limagrain.co.uk
