Congratulations to the winner of our OSR seed competition

Agrii growers who purchased three packs or more of DK Impressario or DK Exsteel OSR by the end of June were automatically entered into a prize draw to win a set of Makita power tools. Our congratulations go to Buckinghamshire farmer Tony Barnes, picked at random as the winner of the competition.

Tony Barnes receives his prize from his agronomist Robbie Jamie and Seed Manager David Smith.

Mr Barnes has been an Agrii customer for many years and explains that this is his third year growing Clearfield OSR: ‘I grew DK Impressario the first year, DK Imperial the next, and I’ve gone back to DK Impressario for this coming season because it performed well in the first year and I’m hoping to drill soon while there is some moisture, as our winter barley has been harvested.’

‘Clearfield OSR seemed like a good opportunity to get on top of hedge mustard and charlock within the rotation on Tony’s farm’ explains Mr Barnes’ agronomist, Robbie Jamie. ‘This approach has proved successful over the last couple of years even if OSR was a bit of a challenge this year. Tony is planning to give hybrid rye a go this year as well.’
