    Makes you think if Putin saw this coming with the export taxes that they put on many months ago on wheat, also in full control of the gas taps.

    If you have OSR in and price it is then N for that is a forgone conclusion by this point, probably the same for 1st wheats. Winter oats and barley can be tweaked down, 2nd wheats well they probably aren’t in the ground yet but seed on farm, swap for less hungry spring barley.

    It’s like everything really, the weather will be the king of the day. I did think it was really good for grass and clover loved it, problem going forward is nothing likes no water and everything hates too much and that seems what we get now, I think I may revisit it, and you can put it on on a...

    Anyone else ever used any of the microbe fixing products, I used Twin N in the past and you really couldn’t tell the difference on grass, I must add it needed moisture and warmth and of course didn’t have the kick in affect of AN and also i think for winter cereals needed to go on early.

    Potato Quality

    I see the government is shouting about seed potatoes from the EU in the fallout over shellfish so if the tit for tat wars start maybe not.

    Snap, 21 months to go here with an ELS/HLS agreement and would like to tweak as I am fairly well stacked with options and 10 years is a long time too be beholden to what where very good ideas at the time, undersown grass and legume ley is always wet grain, cereal and grass smother out lots of...

    C2 seed rates

    I was really shocked at the time, mainly because they just didn’t seem to be bothered about it and also the fact that I had used what I perceived to be high quality sister company for all the sowing of an ELS/HLS agreement a couple of years earlier. on a different subject if anyone notices lots...

    C2 seed rates

    Well you know I was looking for such an comprehensive explanation of certified seed standards when I was supplied with some yellow, EU standards, labelled stubble turnip seed which was mixed with blackgrass some years ago!

    C2 seed rates

    Well that’s easy cos up here since last August it’s been for it to be dry next week, then all it’s done is p**s down!

    C2 seed rates

    In my view I still think we should have a germination % and vigour score on each seed label or a facility where you can log into to see results from a certain lot number, we get these results when we home save so it can’t be that hard, it would also help with priority as to which order you sow...

    Which is why oil went negative last spring because they had to move it before the option expired but there was no storage to take it.

    Plenty of arable farm owners and workers hardly get a moment with their other halves or children during the summer school holidays and if they do it normally means it’s p*****g down and they tend to be a little stressed, time spent with kids growing up can never be got back, if the opportunity...

    No Deal Brexit

    While the price difference between Uk and French lamb stays as it is at the moment then the incentive for people to trade sheepmeat over to France will remain even with the extra hassle, with a tariff the trade is stone dead.

    No Deal Brexit

    Yep the lamb they send here will go straight to France to replace UK lamb and they will get much more for it! The last few day’s I have poured through many websites to gather a picture of where us lamb producers are regards imports, exports from where and too, it really is a maze and a web of...

    🤷🏻‍♂️ Hands up i fell into that head first, yep producing the same heap for less inputs and carbon is productivity, bit like me having clover and herb leys to get lambs away off what they graze rather than giving them cake!

    Bigger heap normaly means lower prices so how does that work?

    Well that is the can of worms, at the moment they have X pot of £ to devide by X number of entitelments. Stewardship schemes are budgeted to a pot of money available so is competitive. ELMS is a free for all and if they set payments on an income forgone payment in a high price wheat year they...
