Week 40 and 41 (2017) Update

The Fusarium trial had been left as long as possible in order to ensure the maximum level of infection possible before rotovating the whole crop in to ensure a good level of inoculum for next years trials (a grower worse nightmare having it sat  in the soil waiting to infect next years crop!) See photos below.  There were definite varietal difference showed up within the trial with induction that the Mathilda range may be less susceptible than other but this will need to be confirmed in next years replicated variety trial.

The second round of the lily growing media  trial was also harvested and assessed this week. See photos below.
