OLIVER SMITH
  • On the edge of the Lincolnshire Wolds, Oliver Smith manages 600 hectares for Stourton Estates, along with a further 200ha of contract farming. This year he has 115ha oilseed rape, which he reported is around 25 per cent down on the area grown in the past. It will reduce the entry for first wheat, but does mean the rotational break for OSR will be extended. Oliver typically grows three OSR varieties a year, selected for proven consistency on the farm. It is established by strip till, using a Sumo DTS drill.
