“I was very satisfied with that – it’s the third year of barley and it was the best yield we’ve had. It’s good big bold stuff too.”

Mr Robinson’s 16ha (40 acres) of Quench spring barley was still about two weeks away, and would be followed by 5ha (12 acres) of Robigus winter wheat.

“It’s all looking very well.”

 Syngenta

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.
