Just curious to know what peoples thoughts are on Spring vs Autumn (August/September) drilling of Lucerne. To date we have only established in the spring, but no rain in May really slowed it down, the flip side is grass weed competition in the Autumn, being organic we don't have the option of a...

Normally try and drill first ten days of October but last two years have been caught by heavy storms just after drilling that has gone on for months, thinking of going early this time, what's are others doing ?
See Ergot tolerances have been tightened up this harvest does this mean if you can see it on lump of wheat it will need dressing out or is there some guidance say 1 ergot kernel per kg of wheat is too much ?
If it has to be gravity separated to remove how much per tonne can you expect to pay ...
