New Beet Trials Harvested

Information gives you the power to make the best decision on which beet cultivars to use.

For the past five years DLF researchers have conducted over 20 trials on fodder beet crop management and the performance of cultivars. Trials were again established in spring 2016, and the trials have all been measured.  The graph below is just one example of how much variation there is in the yield of some cultivars.  

2016 saw a dramatic increase in the number cultivars being sold to farmers, and DLF were able to test 30 cultivars.  All results are now published on this website (click here for link), or you can request an printed copy by emailing Gavin at this address/link.
