Wynnstay provides the most cost-effective and efficient solutions by developing an understanding of specific customer requirements. This, in turn, will help to maximise output - whilst lowering production costs.
Grassland Crop Protection
Grassland management is often overlooked for new leys, but by prioritising weed control early during establishment, you will achieve cost-effective, long-lasting control, resulting in a better quality crop in the long term.
Correct product choice, an appropriate rate and timely application are crucial. ‘Clover-safe’ herbicides can be usefully employed. However, when there is a particularly challenging weed problem, it may be advisable to forget about saving the clover and use more effective ‘non clover-safe’ products. It is a straightforward process to re-establish clover at a later date. Early treatment not only allows you to get on top of weeds, but also allows the new sward to get a good, clean start without weed competition, so sown species persist for longer. The approach needs to be field specific in terms of the product recommendations, so talk to one of the Wynnstay agronomists, who can advise on the best approach for you.
Crop Nutrition Services
Wynnstay are able to offer a complete crop nutrition package from product supply through to fertiliser strategy and planning advice. The supply of product is fully supported by an expert advisory service — based on the bespoke needs of each customer. The Fertiliser Department, Agronomy Team and Arable Specialists can use their extensive technical knowledge to develop a fertiliser programme specific to each customers’ requirements. Wynnstay recognises the importance of analysing individual conditions to increase the efficiency of fertiliser – with the aim of maximising productivity and minimising expenditure.
A strategic approach requires in-depth examination and planning. Wynnstay’s team of specialists will use a number of methods to gather crucial insight to help make the best decisions on crop nutrition. This bespoke analysis will include an understanding of:
- Soil analysis results
- End use of the crop
- Previous cropping and management
- Environmental factors
- Legislative requirements
Comprehensive Crop Nutrition Planning and NVZ Compliance
Wynnstay offer a comprehensive NVZ and nutrient management service using cutting edge software that generates accurate crop nutrition plans and field records. As well as producing field-specific Nitrogen recommendations, the software also takes into account Sulphur requirements and balances P and K off-takes or builds reserves. The fertiliser value of manures, slurries and other organic inputs will also be included in the calculations.
The reports generated are fully compliant with NVZ legislation.
