The trial was planted on the 4/11/2016 into moisture using a Janke offset disk. The crop established poorly at around 5-6 plants/m but decided to keep it. The crop grew well for the first half of the season but did suffer some damge from mirids. The crop had very little rain throughout the season but managed to keep growing maybe due to the lower plant stand. We were reasoneably happy with the yields considering the harsh season and the quality held up with very few discounts.
