Winter Brassicas for Continuity – Webinar – Wednesday, 14 Dec 2022, 19:00 – 20:30 GMT
Date Published: 8th December 2022
Brassicas are the biggest and most valuable crop family for winter sales. How can growers provide continuity in an uncertain climate?
The summer heatwave and the mild autumn have played havoc with many brassica growers’ continuity plans. How can growers plan their cropping plans to be resilient? We are joined by John Overvoorde of organic plant-raisers Delfland Nurseries and grower Jez Taylor of Daylesford Organic to discuss how we can make winter brassicas succeed.
Jez Taylor said, “I am happy to share my experience of brassica growing, the most important of our veg families and the rotational group that I’m constantly tweaking like a captain choosing a football team.”
