NK's Nigel Padbury visited James Chamberlain last week. As well as a Sigma Team member James also grows seed crops for NK. Logon to the Sigma Team photo gallery - images of the NK Molten and NK Bravour crops have been uploaded - we visited both fields during the third Sigma Team meeting. Nigel thought the crops looked good although the photos were taken on a dull day.
James has been following GrowHow's N-Min recommendation plan - the NK Bravour picture shows one of the crops used in the comparison. James believes there are no visual differences between the high and low N crops - which should be good news! In fact he is so impressed at the results - Tom Land has produced recommendations using N-Min for James's wheat crops.
James has commented that he though the low N crop had a stronger smell. Any theories?
Catching up with Andrew Ward - he shares James's enthusiasm for the lower N regime, particularly the cost savings. So we wait for the yield comparisons...
