    Will we be ploughing for re seeding in the future?

    With farmers taking the blame for wrecking the planet do you think we will be ploughing up permanent grassland to re seed?

    Frosted grazing ground

    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...
