UK: Innovations to improve returns on investment

New innovations in vegetable varieties and agronomy that can improve returns for vegetable growers at every point in the production cycle, will be the key focus for this year’s Syngenta Fields of Innovation Open Days in October. 

A combination of new variety attributes and technologies that can significantly increase the marketable yield from every hectare - along with cutting growing costs through better-targeted use of inputs - offers valuable scope to improve growers’ returns on investment.

The Fields of Innovation site will also demonstrate new brassica and salad varieties with inherently strong natural disease resistance, to deliver consistent high quality produce along with greater flexibility and resilience in disease control programmes.

And, to complement the improved resistance, Fields of Innovation gives the first chance to see the field performance potential of a completely new fungicide in development for salad crops.   

Other features will include New Farming Technologies to enhance efficiency of vegetable production, along with a Learning Zone where local schools and children will be invited to find out more about vegetable growing and where their food comes from.
