Yara N-Sensor© Training

During January and February 2013 we will be running a series of Yara N-Sensor training days aimed at new, existing and potential customers. Group training days are an excellent way of refreshing your memory on the N Sensor, improving your knowledge and use of the system or data handing. Delegates usually benefit from the interaction and discussion with others on the course.  The day will not only focus on the training of the sensor but will include agronomy advice, practical usage, hardware to simulate operation and access to Precision Decisions staff for any advice on application machine setup and calibration.  More information can be found here.....

  • BVA will support second year of badger cull pilots in England
    The British Veterinary Association (BVA) supports the second year of the pilot culls in England.

  • Maris otter barley, the secret plot for quality
    It may not have a preservation order, but a particular plot of North Norfolk farmland is, to many brewers, sacred. Four acres in size and bounded by thick hedging, the plot appears unremarkable: from a distance it is just like any other field of cereal crops. However, this small area of land is home to the mother crop of the revered Maris Otter malting barley. Whereas most fields remain largely untouched in the weeks leading up to harvest, this one has seen intensive activity long before a c...Continue Reading

  • Agri-Tech East to say ancient wheat varieties and latest technology hold key to food security
    Global wheat consumption exceeded production in six out of the last eight years.
