"Putting Research into Practice"
Take a research result from a conventional research establishment, recruit a high profile grower relevant to subject to undertake a commercial scale trial to evaluate a “Modified” practice against the growers “Conventional” practice.
The trial would be supervised by the originating research establishment monitoring key elements of the crops development.
A report of the trial would be produced by the research establishment and successes disseminated to Industry with the endorsement of the host Grower.
Success to be judged by improvements in:
Marketable Yield from the modified practice.
Input Cost Savings.
The ultimate evaluation of the project will be the adoption across Industry of the modified practice principles of a piece of research which by necessity improves the competitiveness of the GB industry.
