Have I missed this thread or has no one started?
Mucked 2 weeks ago.
Soil loosening with topsoiler yesterday and today.
Work with the carrier tomorrow and then wednesday.................. rain!!!? :rolleyes:
This is for spring barley.
How is everyone getting on, still to wet?
Anyone else struggling with a Sencrop rain gauge. I’ve had mine for about 3 months, it’s level and free of debris yet I’m certain it’s inaccurate. Take last nights rain, old fashion rain gauge reads 25mm but Sencrop tells me 17mm. On other occasions it’s been raining yet Sencrop says 0.0...
