PHILIP BRADSHAW
  • Cambridgeshire grower, Philip Bradshaw, has pioneered various establishment techniques and variety trials, including the use of a Sly Stripcat to establish OSR and mustard crops, with strip cultivation at 60cm rows. Farming as part of a group of growers, they have around 100 hectares of OSR. Phil aims for a four-year rotation, but will readily adjust the area to only crop where he believes they can achieve profitable yields. The farm averages yields of 4.7 t/ha, with the best performing crop from a stand of just 16 plants per m2 – so he is adamant low plant counts are not a problem, providing pest damage can be avoided. Phil added that the reduction in sugar beet growing in the area has seen an upsurge in oilseed rape growing.
