Charger yields 4.5 t/ha for Shropshire Grower

Date Added: 09/08/2016

Charger OSR has yielded 4.5 t/ha for Richard Bannister on his farm near Bridgenorth in Shropshire, where thirty-three hectares of the variety were cut with an average 7% moisture.

"I'm pleased with the Charger as it was the main variety we grew on farm this year and it was the best," says Mr Bannister. "It was clean throughout and all of it was standing, which made it very easy to harvest.  We'll be putting in another 33 ha of Charger this year, because we know it works well and see no reason to change away," he continues.

Charger is a high gross output conventional variety that provides vigorous autumn growth and a short stiff straw. It has a "9" for stem stiffness and "8" for lodging.
