Friday 30th June 2017 – Open Day



Pearce Seeds will be hosting their seventh annual open day at their trials facility, Plumber Farm near Sturminster Newton in Dorset on Friday 30th June 2017.

One field is dedicated to the open day where the trials team have prepared demonstrations plots representative of all the research undertaken on the farm. On show will be variety plots of grass, cereals, pulses and OSR as well as forage and grass demonstration plots, greening crops and game cover crops.

As the trials farm and the open day has evolved, Pearce Seeds have improved the experience at the open day. Rather than take attendees on a full tour of the site, they can now see a snap shot of what goes on at the trials facility in one field and further explore in depth the areas that interest them.

Pearce Seeds have been striving for Plumber Farm to be a centre of agricultural excellence in the south west, and have had some interesting results from the trials facility enabling their agronomists and farmers in the region to benefit from localised trials work.

Outside of the demonstration field the Farm is used to undertake multiplications of high grade seeds and disease observation plots to assess new crosses for disease resistance, of which there are over 4,000 1m2 plots for companies like Syngenta, Saaten Union and Limagrain. Pearce Trials team are ORETO certified which means trials data produced by the trials team can be submitted as part of a product registration or reregistration.
Tours of the whole site will be available for those farmers wishing to see more than just the demonstration field.

As usual there will also be trade stands from seed traders, chemical manufactures, machinery supplies and local agribusinesses.

TO BOOK A PLACE & RECEIVE DIRECTIONS
PLEASE CALL 01935 811400

Pearce Seeds LLP have been producing organic seeds since 2006 - mainly growing for the wholesale market - with limited direct farm contact. In 2016 we took over Organic Seed Producers and are slowly moving into the retail side to support farmers with our extensive portfolio of seed varities, mainly in combinable crops.

Over the last 10 years we have carried out small scale organic trials to support our varietal choices, mainly looking at spring cropping and more for obervational assessment. In 2016  we had a successful replicated trial but again only on spring verieties. This year we are very pleased to be able to present a significant witner variety trial and our spring trial but also we are looking at a home grown protein trial.

With Today's increasing availability problmes of organic proteins the trials day will also offer the opportunity to observe and discuss alternative crops, to start to assess what may suit growing for the organic home grown protein supply.

We offer an extenisve, but carefully chosen portfolio of organic combinalbe varieties for our customers.

Considerations of regional suitability, rotation and market outlets are just some of the areas we address before deciding which organic varieties we multiply for the following year to supply our customers.
