Our first look at the winter wheat and winter oilseed rape variety demo plots on the NIAB TAG stand at the 2013 Cereals Event site in Lincolnshire.

Despite the difficult autumn conditions NIAB TAG's Shaun Coleman and his team have succeeded in establishing the plots and they are looking great. The team has also been busy drilling and managing plots on several other stands around the site.

The NIAB TAG stand has a new feature at next year's event looking at the components of yield with eight very different winter wheat varieties; past, current and future. The 'Hole Story' makes a welcome return after its success this year and we are also delighted that John Deere is kindly providing a direct drill for our machinery exhibit.

More details early next year...
