The firm’s Nigel Padbury said: “With over 25 years’ experience in the crop, we know linseed has the capability to outperform some of the more mainstream crops such as wheat and oilseed rape, under the right management. We are looking for growers to push the boundaries, search out the subtle tactics and apply the attention to detail that will get an award-winning result.”

 

To qualify for entry, a minimum of eight hectares of either spring or winter linseed needs to be grown for harvest 2018. Entrants will have the opportunity to win one of three categories; best net margin per hectare, best overall yield and best innovation in linseed agronomy.

 

A panel of judges will make final assessments, which may involve an on-farm visit. Growers wishing to apply can do so by registering their interest at www.premiumcrops.com
