    Wide spacing cereal crops... pictures please

    Sundance wheat planted on the 25th September. We sprayed the osr off two days later once wind had died down. Quite stressful couple of days[emoji23] It was grazed with lambs in Feb. Doesn't want much more weather on it

    DD, FYM and mob grazing

    How good is your spreader at giving an even spread and pulling the muck to pieces and not leaving lumps? In the second scenario, it would be a good move to plant the cover crop as soon as the wholecrop is off if conditions are suitable
