Watch our Virtual Wheat Trials Open Day!

Did you miss not being able to attend our annual Wheat Variety Trials Open Day at Mountfair Farming this year due to current restrictions?

If so, don’t worry. Last week, three of the McCreath Simpson & Prentice team – Seed Director Paul Huntley, Agrochemical & Technical Director David Cairns and Technical Officer Ben Gothorp – recorded our first-ever Wheat Variety Trials Open Day.

The 43-minute video, which can be watched below, takes viewers through all 22 plots of established and new AHDB Recommended List Wheat varieties, as well as three seed treatments.
