Fast start for maize agronomy meetings

Maize spraying

The meetings will give the chance to hear and discuss technologies including seedbed preparation, crop nutrition and weed control - aimed at giving maize crops a fast start and clean growth.

Maize costs as much to grow as a high-yielding wheat crop, which makes it essential to give it the same agronomy attention. And it has to complete its growth in just seven months - with a fast start critical to achieving consistently high yields.
