    Farming in the future

    What do we reckon is ahead of us ? More tech more regulation? More plant based farming??? Where does the predominantly livestock based small family farm fit in in the future?

    Organic soil rotation

    If you haven’t got irrigation so limited appeal to potato/veg growers what crops are any good on black land? Sugar beet and wheat on their own aren’t enough really. Residuals don’t work very well so BG an increasing problem. Any thoughts? Letting for maize or turf is not appealing/appropriate...

    Arable farmers, is it essential that……

    When you get your Lexion out of the shed you have to state something portentous on Twitter such as: ‘Winter barley is a go’ A go? What is this mangling of the language? The correct phrase surely, is something like ‘harvest has commenced’ Alternatively: ‘The barley isn’t quite fit but we’re...

    I’ve 30 acres been in permanent grass for years needing freshened up. Given feed price and straw prices I’m thinking I should put some barley in and produce something of my own.

    Spring wheat weed control strategy

    Thinking of swapping winter wheat for spring wheat here just to make life a bit easier in the autumn. But having never grown it and not asked the agronomist yet as I’d like a bit of knowledge, what is everybody doing weed control wise particularly for blackgrass and ryegrass? Pre-em? Emergence...

    When to stop spraying due to heat

    As title says, do you stop because of bright sun shine or when it gets too hot ? Reason for asking, today isn’t that hot (21 degrees) but unbroken bright sunshine and tomorrow will be very hot and sunny, just wondering what people’s thoughts are.

    Winter wheat T1 2021

    Ok, what are your plans for T1? Back in April when it was looking like another drought I was thinking keep it cheap! However we’ve now had A LOT of rain and 90% of the wheats are looking like they have some good potential. So, my and my agronomist thoughts are to go with a more robust T1 His...
