STAR

Sustainability Trial for Arable RotationsNIAB TAG STAR trials site

This study is a long-term rotation experiment delivered through NIAB TAG and supported by The Felix Thornley Cobbold Trust.

The STAR Project is examining the interaction of rotation and cultivation techniques. The impact of rotation and cultivation on weed management and soil condition is becoming increasingly apparent as the study progresses. With regard to cultivation system the highest margins are associated with a managed approach. With regard to rotation the highest margins are associated with winter cropping systems. Changes in gross margin ranking are being seen as the study progresses.
