Lettuce Propagation

Field Vegetables

The centre has established a reputation for carrying out high quality trials on field vegetable and salad crops on our light sandy soils. Recent work has included pest and disease control in carrots, brassicas, lettuce, variety trials and assessing the potential of bio-stimulants. Nutrition projects have looked at reducing the risk of tipburn in lettuce, improving the efficiency of nitrogen fertilisers and reducing the risk of nitrate leaching.
