The Alchemy would be later than the Humber, he said.

The 36ha (90 acres) looked very well. “If it comes down as well as it looks I’ll be happy.”

Mr Jones planned to cut some of the wheat as wholecrop for the dairy herd, and had no other crops to harvest this year.

Crop: Winter wheat
Varieties: Alchemy and Humber
Area: 36ha (90 acres)



Duxford winter wheat is an HGCA Recommended List 2008/09 variety with very high UK treated yields and the top score for resistance to lodging with PGR. Combined with an unbeaten second wheat yield and a balanced disease resistance profile, this new variety from Syngenta Seeds will help UK growers rise to the challenge of producing more grain profitably.
