Field Trials and Tribulations

Field Trials and Tribulations | Articles mentioning John Innes Centre | Scoop.it

JIC's Chris Burt : "This year my field trials continue to produce challenges, in particular a new seed drill working in unexpected ways. This has re-affirmed the importance of controls and indicators (e.g. extreme dwarf lines) that can be identified as young plants. A cold winter and spring has led to little certainty when plants will be ready, but they are growing and looking healthy. I am looking forward to heading out there with my sprayer full of Fusarium conidia and even more to an excel sheet full of data by August."
