    DD wheat post OSR

    Much as our soil conditions would allow us to do it - unfortunately the slugs won’t. How effective is multiple stubble raking post osr pre wheat drilling in managing slug populations or is this just wishful thinking ?

    State of your crops?

    Given the late drilling date and the amount of rain that’s gone on them I’m pleasantly pleased with the state of my crops. I do have two small fields that are below par but most are looking well. How are others looking? Wheat and barley below, no rape this year but locally it looks well.
