Grampian Growers along with our partners E. Park & Sons and Skea Organics (Grampian/Parks/Skea) have proceeded to the next stages of our GPS breeding programme with this years planting finished. We have 2 trials currently on going in conjunction with the James Hutton Institute. The M1 trial (in it’s 5th year) has 180 varieties planted this year and the M3 trial (in it’s 7th year) has 23 varieties planted this year. These two trials have also been replicated at sites in England to see how the varieties perform in different climates. We are hoping to have varieties national listed in 2 years time.
The trials are showing very encouraging results with some promising varieties up and coming. Please don’t hesitate to contact us for more information.
