This article presents information related to increasing crop yield during winters. Dorset grower Jim Goddard has been following advice to increase nitrogen use on winter wheat for the past four years, and seen both grain quality and yields rise. Working with UAP agronomist Howard Moore, Goddard's aim has been to secure a premium on Group 2 varieties according to the market specification. While average wheat yields at Fairmile Farm, near Dorchester, have increased from 8.5t/ha to close to 10t/ha, the 13% protein target has been achieved when required.
