Trial Site

Bright Seeds continually trial new and existing straights and mixtures to ensure we are always supplying the best possible products to our customers. 

Our main trial and emonstration plots is at Bright Seeds HQ in Wiltshire. This is a very exposed site within the Chalke Valley, providing the ideal location for testing winter-hardiness and stadning ability. The soilt type is greensand which means we can create a nice seedbed and establish the crops in the best possible way. 

 In addition to product trials, we also trial herbicides on our crops which menas we can monitor which crop types are tolerant of selective herbicides. In 2022 we did a lot of work on how drilling dates can impact on brassica establishment success and also looked at how growing mixtures rather than striaghts can be beneficial for summer-sowing scenarios.
