    Nitrogen 3rd pass

    What’s everybody doing? Our milling winter wheats were planted mid October to mid November and so far had 165kg N. We are due another 80kg (liquid) to go for group 1 spec but whilst the calendar says go the crops I think are a month behind due to the dry spell. N2 went on a month ago but it’s...

    USDA FAS forecast UK wheat to stay net-importer for 2021/22

    As we all know, better planting progress for winter and spring cereals has laid the foundations for an increased UK grain production figure. But nearly a month without substantial rainfall across the UK has threatened crop health, with yields likely affected. Production figure forecasts from...

    No Satellite Biomass Imagery Available This Year for VRA N?

    We have not had a useable satellite image since late January so are unable to do any up to date VRA N plans. Given that all these services supposedly use the same satellites, is everyone else in the same boat or am i incredibly unlucky that each of the subsequent ~ 8 passes (approx 1 per week)...

    Wheat growth metrics

    What are people doing to monitor wheat as it is growing? Plant counts / tiller counts / ears etc? Brix? I want to put a few more things in place to monitor the crop as it’s growing and I’m trying to work out what is worth while and what’s not. I do some tissue and grain analysis already. My...

    Imaging; usefulness, payback, cost/benefit

    Is anyone using any of the imaging systems in anger? There seems to be a plethora of these appearing and I have meddled with the Agrii contour system. They seem to raise more questions than they answer and on generally light soil they just show lack of moisture, IMHO. They could however be used...

    Wh(e)at goes up must come down

    Wheat took a breather today on both sides of the Atlantic, reversing from multi-month high on profit taking and a dearth of fresh news. The strong recovery in both the Sterling and the euro against the US dollar was adding pressure in Europe. Volatility is still intact with the 5-day average...

    Rubble crusher

    Got a few ton of rubble to get rid of, thinking of hiring a rubble crusher and mincing it down (can have it minced down almost to dust/grit to put in especially poached gateways or maybe leaving it a bit larger to spread and roll over to assist drainage, anyone got any experience/pointers?

    Italy's in shut down

    If Italy is in shut down .....how is it that reporters from all over the world can suddenly arrive there to report ? I'm just hope that the Vegan bandwagon doesn't try ,by some means, to link it to livestock however tenuously just to cause doubt and mischief !
