Designed for farmers, these free events are designed to help farmers take a step back from the urgent business, political and climate issues of the moment, reflect on what you want to achieve in the long term and identify the best tools, techniques, and strategies to future proof your business.

Ask the Expert: Andy Guy
Sustainable food and farming consultant Andy Guy is just one of the experts helping to nurture the four farms in the Resilient & Ready programme.

In his recent video (click the image below) Andy explains why and how farmers contact him to talk about becoming more sustainable. He provides his definition of sustainable agriculture, and advice for businesses who want to become more resilient in the future. You can also read his blog using the button below.
For powerful weed control in OSR, turn to Belkar® herbicide
Simple practical changes can have huge impact on-farm. One effective strategy over the past two seasons for UK OSR growers is swapping weed control from a broad acre pre-emergence or early post emergence approach to waiting until full crop establishment.

Corteva’s post-emergence herbicide Belkar has become an intrinsic part of this new integrated strategy. Farmers can wait until the crop is out of the ground, giving time to assess the visible weed pressure and impact that pests like cabbage stem flea beetle and slugs have had and then make the decision on their broadleaved weed herbicide investment. 

Belkar is a broad-spectrum herbicide and is highly effective on key weeds such as cleavers, cranesbill, shepherd's purse and fumitory. Containing Arylex™ active, it has a wide window of application from September through to the end of December, with flexible timing and rate options.
Click on the image below to watch Andy Fussell, a farmer from Somerset, explain why a post-emergence herbicide is vital to the success of his crop.

Oilseed rape is an important crop on the farm and Andy is benefitting from employing an establishment strategy which puts less investment up front in the programme, allowing him to see how the crop establishes and which weeds germinate before making the next important decision on inputs.
OSR offer on PT303 and Belkar
With the oilseed rape area predicted to increase this year, farmers are advised to deploy a range of novel strategies to help them take advantage of an extremely buoyant market. Demand for quality British rapeseed is unrelenting with record prices recorded this year, and the associated gross margins remain unrivalled. This means that oilseed rape will remain the break crop of choice for a huge number of farms, while some businesses may have decided to increase their planted area this autumn. 

If you’re an OSR grower who fancies having an extra £303 to spend this season, you can redeem our latest offer when you purchase our new Protector Sclerotinia tolerant hybrid PT303 and Belkar herbicide

Participants will be eligible for a £303 One4All gift card when they provide proof of purchase for these items.
