My name is Andreas Spyron, I farm at Chisamba north of Lusaka growing soya, barley and wheat. I applied Crofft to 400 hectares in July of 2013 of wheat and barley. My main interest in using Crofft was to reduce lodging as last year we had a very large problem with up to 80% lodging in my Barley.


The crop this year was excellent. As the crop grew it seemed that it had bigger heads than usual and was greener. In spite of the larger heads though we had no lodging whatsoever.

My wheat crop averaged 9.9 tonnes and my Barley 10.6 tonnes per hectare. I am very happy with the results from Crofft and will be using it on soya in the 2013 / 2014 season and again on barley and wheat.
