All growers will benefit from a visit to meet the Kings team at Cereals 2016
A visit to Kings on stand 421 will be worthwhile for every grower attending this year’s Cereals event.
As well as the latest advice on the best varieties to grow for successful game cover, green cover, conservation and forage crops, Kings advisory team will be available to offer expert guidance on the best ways to comply with and benefit from changing legislation.
At the event, Kings will provide advice on a number of key areas including:
- The continued development of green cover crops either within EFAs or for dedicated soil management.
- How to make a successful Countryside Stewardship application or select EFA options to benefit the farm business as well as meeting scheme requirements.
- Kings’ MyCompliance advisory service which can help growers meet the requirements of farm assurance schemes, greening and stewardship initiatives and health and safety. This can be especially useful for growers becoming accustomed to CAP reform changes and considering the new Countryside Stewardship scheme.
- Soil and water conditions - Kings and the Game and Wildlife Conservation Trust (GWCT) have worked together for many years on farmland conservation at the Allerton Project in Leicestershire. The project has expanded to incorporate a vast amount of soil and water work. The GWCT’s Dr Alastair Leake, head of project, Dr Chris Stoate, head of research, Phil Jarvis, head of farming and Jim Egan, head of development and training will be available on the Kings stand to discuss their collaborative approach and findings.
- Operation Pollinator – Growers will be able to see fully grown plots of Annual Wildflower and Bees n Seeds Mixes which were specifically designed to support this initiative from Syngenta and Campaign for the Farmed Environment. Learn how to use these mixtures to boost habitats for pollinating insects on your land.
“At Kings we constantly strive to help growers get the best from their business, and our focus at this year’s Cereals event reflects that,” explains manager Richard Barnes. “We’re not only offering the specialist crop products and advice people expect from us; our expanded team, increased expertise and partnership work mean Kings’ products and advice are relevant to every grower in the UK. By visiting us at Cereals, growers will be able to learn more about how they can make the most of their own specific circumstances to meet the needs of their land as well as fulfilling mandatory criteria or benefitting wildlife.”
Cereals takes place on 15th & 16th June 2016, at Chrishall Grange, near Duxford, Cambridgeshire.
Call and meet the Kings team at stand 421, adjacent to the Frontier Agriculture marquee. As usual, an extensive and vibrant display of wildflowers, cover and conservation crops will provide a backdrop to the Kings stand, which makes it easy for visitors to find.
