The Winter Linseed trial looked good for the NIAB South Open Day on the 18th June, when over 150 visitors tolerated the rain the to see the trial. The poppies are in the discard area which has not been sprayed, the fact that the trials themselves are clear of poppies is a clear demonstration that the herbicides do work!!
