Cereal Disease Control

Healthy crops, high yields, more profit, and ultimately more certainty - this is what our innovative fungicides are bringing to the cereal growers.

We have invested our time, technology and reputation to prove the performance of our fungicides where it matters. In the real world, under real conditions, we supplied our 50 Real Results growers with our new cereal fungicide, Revystar® XE to test against farm standard fungicide treatments, using statistically rigorous Agronomics trial methodology through our independent industry partner ADAS.

#REVYSTORIES

Beyond those pioneers, the community of Revystar® XE users has increased dramatically. Thousands of cereal growers have trusted us in 2021, all over the UK, in one of the most challenging year from a disease control perspective. We will be hearing more in-depth about their farming experiences, as they share their stories of using Revystar® XE.

Richard Budd's Revystory

Richard has been back on the family farm for 10 years, having gained a degree in Botany at Nottingham University and working in London as a wine broker, specialising in private client investment portfolios.

Steve Crayston's Revystory

Steve Crayston's Revystory

Steve farms two separate blocks totalling 1,000ha in north Essex. His business is as diverse as his crop rotation which includes echium as well as the more usual arable crops of wheat, spring oats, maize and sugar beet.

Hannah Darby's Revystory

Hannah Darby's Revystory

Hannah farms the family farm with her uncle and is a fourth-generation farmer. Farming is Hannah’s second career, as prior to farming she was a physiotherapist. She did a degree in physiotherapy and practiced until 2013, when she realized that she missed farming and so decided to go back and study again, doing a Masters in arable crop management at Writtle College.

Mike Hambly's Revystory

Mike Hambly's Revystory

Mike grew up on the family farm and after gaining a degree in Agriculture at Harper Adams in 1985, he worked in a number of roles within the arable sector before returning to the farm, which he now runs with his wife. He has a wealth of technical industry knowledge, built up from some 21 years working in the supply trade, agronomy, and the grain division of Cornwall Farmers (now part of Countrywide Farmers).

Toby Hogsbjerg's Revystory

Toby Hogsbjerg's Revystory

Toby grew up on a farm in Suffolk and after attending Harper Adams and gaining an HND (Agric) started his career with Broadoak/Coop Farms in Norfolk where he specialised in root crop production. He is now back in Norfolk again, manager of the Wicken Farms Company, a job which he started in autumn 2018. In the intervening years he has managed farms in the south of England, specialising in growing root crops and potatoes and a move across the water to Southern Ireland saw him involved in growing onions as well as root crops.

Tim Lamyman's Revystory

Tim Lamyman's Revystory

There are farmers whose names are synonymous with high yielding wheat crops – Mike Solari, Eric Watson and Tim Lamyman. Mike and Eric farm in New Zealand, where their soils are deep in a country that routinely irrigates its cereal crops. In sharp contrast, Tim farms Worlaby Farm on the Lincolnshire Wolds near Horncastle.
