Stow Longa Technology Centre iFarm Preview T he cultivation trial at Stow Longa Technology Centre is now into year 5 and the big question is can cultivations and drilling dates over 5 years make a difference With 4 iFarm days over the summer we invite you to come and see our latest results. The Stow Longa site has recently seen the introduction of trials on cover crops to monitor their impact on grass weed control this summer we will take a look at which species are doing what to the soil structure and effect it has on your winter and spring wheat drillings. We also have a new experiment looking into crop rotations on heavily infected blackgrass elds. The experiment which will show 6 different rotations is into year 1 of a 5 year trial - how do these 1ha blocks look in year one As per previous years the event will include variety tours to show who is performing in the ght against blackgrass including spring wheat varieties drilled towards the end of October alongside winter wheat varieties to give a direct comparison. There will be 4 separate iFarm events at Stow Longa this summer on 4th 15th 19th June and 6th July.
