Comparison of cropping methods for winter wheat (VA20/VA21)

The diversity of possible ways of producing winter wheat will be demonstrated by 11 teams from Denmark, France, Poland, Russia, Sweden, Switzerland, the Czech Republic and Germany. Each participant in the competition variant will be striving to achieve the highest performance free of direct costs. In the experimental variant the teams will be presenting what they consider to be an interesting process. The varied design of the cropping methods (variety, drilling method, fertilizing, plant protection) corresponds to the diversity of market requirements.

Some participants will be trying to achieve additional yield potential through early drilling, a method practised in many farms in the region. At the DLG-Feldtage 2014 you can discuss with the participants how they handle the associated higher demands made of crop management and plant protection.
