They are:

  • TN621 Fertiliser Recommendations for Vegetables, Minority Arable Crops and Bulbs
  • TN623 Fertiliser Recommendations for Soft Fruit and Rhubarb Crops
  • TN624 Weed Control in the Potato Crop
  • TN625 Nitrogen Recommendations for Cereals, Oilseed Rape and Potatoes

Growers and their advisers can access the technical notes at www.sac.ac.uk/technicalnotes.
