Over the last sixteen years we have developed a range of reliable, high performance maize varieties sourced from several key breeders.  As well as analysing data from the UK and European national list trials, we have our own replicated trials as well as strip trials on farms across the country in both favourable and challenging sites, some with varieties tested under film with the Samco System.  Selection in challenging seasons is of value, allowing us to confirm the performance of key varieties and discard others.  2018 and 2000 tested the drought tolerance of varieties, but a variety is only good if it also performs in a cool wet season, like 2015.  Our priorities are stability or earliness and yield, plus high energy density with no agronomic weaknesses.
