It may be worth considering cutting grass for silage early this spring, rather than leaving it for longer if you continue to have a lack of useful rain, says Ecosyl silage specialist, Peter Smith.
But where rain has arrived, watch out for luxury uptake of unused nitrogen...
Whats the collective thinking?
Few options for this winter, none of them very exciting! Buy your cake wrong and milk price slip 4p and it wouldn't be that great!
Stick or twist, who knows where the price is heading.
People saying a bit of rain and the price of raw materials will fall,

Had a really busy day today, and made my first ever spray cock up,
Was putting some Magphos and amino on my wheat today, and after talking with agronomist a few weeks ago I said send out some teb for the gleam and a bit of moddus or equivalent for a couple of really forward fields.
Hello folks, hoping that someone with more experience than me can guide me on this. All our grazing ground is blackened at the tips somewhat after several weeks of nightly frosts. The worst affected is a patchy poorly established reseed. I had intended to get this stitched but for various...
We've been talking about reduced lime spreading rates on the Beef & Lamb price tracker & thought it deserves it's own thread.
Sorry if I've missed anyone who was in that conversation.
Just to catch up...
