Revisor oat offer

REVISOR spring oats can now be grown on a buy-back contract for Dalgety Agriculture in Scotland. For standard milling quality grain they will pay £5/t over HGCA feed wheat price for September as available movement. The short, stiff strawed variety is in UK recommended list trials, with provisional data showing a 4% yield advantage over Dula. Dalgety claims 5-7% higher yields than Dula in independent trials.
