Our expertise is deep and varied because we built Agrii by combining specialised companies over the last 30 years

Let's find out more about how Agrii helps with more about sustainable farming and the production of safe, affordable and healthy food

Energy Beet

Energy Beet

Energy beet is becoming a vital crop for farmers due to its excellent digestion efficiency, which helps to achieve the performance required from AD plants.

The key is to grow a high yielding, high dry matter type with a good agronomy package. Along with choosing a variety with high DM yields, consideration must also be taken to choose a variety with low dirt tares with a reduced root groove as this is of great benefit for optimal performance.

ALISHA KWS
Alisha KWS offers excellent dry matter yields to deliver high gas yield per hectare. Delivering its best performance from mid-March drilling onwards and with good performance against rust and powdery mildew, Alisha KWS will tick many boxes for UK energy beet growers.

ELOQUENTA KWS
(the next generation)
Eloquenta KWS is the next step in the KWS breeding program, designed to bring high dry matter yields which in turn bring high gas yields per ha. Where the biogas operator wants high DM content, high yields and low dirt tare then Eloquenta KWS can offer it all.

MARUSCHA KWS
Maruscha KWS has shown excellent tolerance to Beet Mild Yellowing Virus (BMWV) in UK trials over the last three years and can offer growers a new tool as part of an integrated approach to managing Virus Yellows.

In addition, Maruscha KWS also shows a competitive response to Beet Yellowing Virus (BYV).

  • Under BMYV infection, Maruscha KWS shows losses of 4% but still yields over 15t/ha more than the mean of KWS control varieties.
  • Under BYV infection, Maruscha KWS can show losses of 37% in yield, however it still yields 10t/ha more than the mean of KWS UK commercial varieties.

  • Lower symptom expression – a greener canopy. For best results, Maruscha KWS should be drilled from mid-March onwards.

Other varieties available upon request.

Anaerobic Digestion

We have been able to provide the UK’s AD Industry with a unique insight into commercial feedstock production since 2012.

Based 20 miles east of Leeds, our Brotherton iFarm is home to an extensive Agrii R&D trials facility which focuses primarily on hybrid rye, forage rye, winter wheat, triticale and also maize.

The trials are specifically designed to supply leading technical management recommendations as well as screening many new genetic lines on an annual basis.

In addition to collating the UK’s leading detailed agronomic data, we are also able to gain in depth methane production analysis from the 500kW AD Plant that is also based at the iFarm.

Throughout the year, iFarm events and tours take place at the site to demonstrate the most up to date developments which can range from
information on drilling date, seed rates and variety traits to input programmes.

The Brotherton iFarm has also played a key role in our development of hybrid rye for grain and its place within today’s UK market.
