FREE Grain Nutrition Benchmarking

Published on

Author:

Grain analysis should tell you whether your crops got enough of each nutrient throughout the whole season (as well as nutrient offtakes).  Thus far, grain analysis has been under-utilised on UK farms so, through the YEN, ADAS is organising a new FREE Grain Nutrition Benchmarking survey, sponsored by AHDB & Yara, to explore the value of Grain Analysis for UK arable farms.

FREE Grain Nutrition Benchmarking
The GNB survey is open to all farms who can provide field-specific samples of any cereal crop harvested in 2017, and (if we get insufficient samples) then from harvest 2018.
 

What you need to do:

1. Work out how many samples you can provide; ideally two to six samples per farm, with a good contrast in growing conditions e.g. different soil, soil P Index, or yield. However, single samples are OK, and multiple samples may be possible.

2. Email yen@adas.co.uk, telling us the number of samples you can provide.

3. Fill in a form (which we will send) with farm & field details (e.g. soil Indices and yield)

4. Send grain samples to Yara, in the labelled bags which we will send you.

What you will get:

In spring 2018, we will send you a one page report for each sample you enter, with the results for your sample compared with the other results from the survey. We are most interested in grain P, but we will analyse for all essential nutrients (other than Molybdenum) i.e. N, P, K, Ca, Mg, S, Mn, Cu, Zn, Fe & B.

For queries please contact yen@adas.co.uk or ring Jane Stead at ADAS Gleadthorpe: 01623 848332
