Dyson Farming believes that the farming industry is stronger when working together, sharing knowledge, experience and information. To help us achieve greater collaboration, Green Crop Information was formed based on the work of Dr Chris Green and the Crop Management Information team – this was already a valued source of evidence-backed data and peer reviewed studies.
Dyson Farming are taking the role of host rather than owner of GCI and will work hand in hand with the GCI team and its members to identify challenges and build solutions as well as using our farm as a practical test bed for new ideas.
