When making management decisions on timing and application rates of Nitrogen fertiliser to both wheat and OSR, Canopy Management is easily forgotten. The practical issues of weather, crop establishment, and work load can overwhelm other managements techniques. However if A/N costs nearly £1.00/kg, then a relatively small saving in Nitrogen can contribute a significant amount to your profit, e.g. a saving of 30kgs of A/N will save £30/ha. Hacketts actively support any approach which will save farmers money or increase profitability. Hacketts also support techniques and initiatives which will contribute to the achievement of environmental targets such as the Agricultural Industry GHG Action Plan.
The Canopy Management techniques will tick both boxes at the same time and they will form a positive part of your Field Nitrogen Planning.
