Week 27 (2016) Update

At last we have managed to get the transplanted aster herbicide trial underway and the plants have been planted and the first of the herbicide treatments applied.

Hopefully we will be able to soon get the land broken down enough to form a seed bed for the sweet William herbicide trials.

The column stock variety trial has established well and is now growing away vigorously (see right hand photo below) and most of the grasses are romping away (see left hand photo) with samples being taken by some of the local packers.
