“With many farmers & growers now considering the role Catch and Cover Crops could play in their rotation there is a real thirst for information about them,” according to Elsoms Sales Manager, Adrian Hayler. “Following the huge interest shown in these crops at Cereals 2014, we decided to include them in our October Open Days to allow farmers & growers to actually see what they looked like a few weeks after sowing,“ added Adrian.

“The Open days are from 9am – 4.30pm on Weds 8th and Thurs 9th October at Spalding and there will be the opportunity to see how different types of Catch and Cover crops have developed over the last seven weeks,” says Heather Ayre, Elsoms Agricultural Seed Sales Specialist. “The Open Days provide the opportunity to talk to experts from Elsoms and Petersen’s about the crops themselves, whilst Brown and Co will provide an update on how they fit into new EU legislation as well as CAP reform in general,” commented Heather.
