Cereals Crop Plots – an interview with Will Compson from KWS

LinkedIn +

With just a few weeks to go until Cereals, we attended the Crop Plot preview day and, alongside our sister publication Farm Contractor & Large Scale Farmer, interviewed the companies exhibiting their new varieties.

Will Compson, UK country manager for KWS, explained how the company will introduce a new circular crop plot design with segments at this year’s event, said to enable a more comprehensive view of the company’s wheats and barleys.

High yielding wheat

Highlights include the high yielding Group 4 wheat, Dawsum, which has proven a popular choice with farmers, alongside the two-row winter barley KWS Tardis.

“Last year there was limited seed but this autumn it is likely to be the most widely sown 2-row,” explained Mr Compson.

The Cereals Event will be held near Duxford, Cambridgeshire on 8-9 June 2022. For more information or to purchase tickets visit the relaunched website at www.cerealsevent.co.uk.
