Simon Jackson

Syngenta Technical Manager 

Simon identifies how to optimise application techniques in pulse crops with 3D ninety nozzle technology, along with the new easy connect closed transfer system for operator and environmental protection. With changing climatic conditions new agronomy techniques such as Quantis biostimulant for heat stress relief will become ever more important to add resilience to crop performance.

Aimee Fowkes

FERA Senior Plant Virologist 

Aimee details the results of extensive virus testing in pulse crops, including implications of the first findings of turnip virus yellows (TuYV), transmitted by aphids into peas. More widely associated with losses in OSR - which can reach 70% yield loss - the disease may be having a hidden cost in pulses.

Pulse advice to add resilience to crop performance

The benefits of pulses have put the crops back on the agenda for more arable growers looking to build greater resilience into their farming systems this season.

Pulse crops play a valuable role in any rotation, including increased fertility, improved soil structure and a good fit with cereal cropping - along with a potential boost to whole farm margins.

Advanced agronomy techniques have consistently improved the reliability and returns from all pulse crops.
