    Bare minimum N rates

    We did quite a lot of low input wheat growing back in the 0 ty's. when wheat was £60 tonne. From experience would not go lower than 160 kg / N per Ha. Yield really dropped off at lower rates. Wheat/ Fallow rotation.

    Direct Driller lime article

    We paid £118/tonne for calcifert lime. WE use variable rate spreading and can do the job ourselves . It is more expensive but we can use our tramlines and do it when we want. Have applied up to 1tonne/Ha, in patches. Good product. Hope that helps !

    50% 1st wheat 50% fallow/cover/stubble

    Indeed I do ! fallow , beans and OSR are my current breaks. 6 year rotation. Yields of wheat after fallow are as good as after rape and beans, on my land. Fallow/wheat was/is a very simple way of farming. Maybe more difficult on heavy land ?

    Red Tractor wasting money?

    Come on, peckers up. don't let the Bas----ds wear you down. With wheat at the price it is I think it is not a bad time to be a wheat grower. Do not intend to join any schemes !! If you stick your head over the parapet , you'll get shot at.
