Other trial notes

Estimated yield: strong winds on the 11th October in 2012 lead to massive shedding in some varieties. The demo was rated independently by Richard Quinlan (Planfarm) for shedding by counting seeds on the ground. A yeild was estimated for each variety from this rating prior to any shedding. 45Y22 was desiccated at approximately 25% seed colour change which would have reduced yeild and hence high moisture and no shattering because it was very green when wind effected the other varieties.
