We are pleased to announce the start dates for the 2016/17 campaign. Due to the later maturing nature of this season’s crop, it has been decided to start this campaign slightly later than normal.  This will ensure the crop has the opportunity to grow to its best potential and help maximise available yields. 

Campaign start dates for 2016/17 are:

Newark   4 October
Bury   4 October
Wissington  6 October
Cantley11 October
