The survey, sponsored by AHDB and Yara, is open to all farms who can provide field-specific samples of any cereal crop harvested in 2017.

What you need to do

  1. Work out how many samples you can provide; ideally two to six samples per farm, with a good contrast in growing conditions e.g. different soil, soil P Index, or yield
  2. Email yen@adas.co.uk, stating the number of samples you can provide
  3. Fill in a form (which ADAS will send) with farm and field details (e.g. soil Indices and yield)
  4. Send grain samples to Yara, in the labelled bags which ADAS will send you

What you will get

 

In spring 2018, ADAS will send you a one page report for each sample you enter, with the results for your sample compared with the other results from the survey. While ADAS are most interested in grain P, the company will analyse for all essential nutrients other than molybdenum (i.e. N, P, K, Ca, Mg, S, Mn, Cu, Zn, Fe & B).
