Crop Stability

Crop stability is a key component for a successful and profitable sugar beet crop. Today, growers have a range of tools, technologies and elite varieties , to tackle and limit the ever increasing threats from pests, diseases and weeds.

Crop Stability is focused on delivering a clean, consistent and healthy crop, which will maximize the yield potential from the genetics and growing environment.  We know the potential of the existing genetics and need to help close the current gap. The need to ensure we are able to ensure we have alternative strategies for the loss and active ingredients and impact of government legislation changes such as neonicotinoid loss. Early detection of disease and variety variation are key components of our programme.
