    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.

    Winter triticale.

    Does anyone on here grow winter triticale and if so what sort of seed rates do you plant at please? I've been asked to plant some for a friend but they only have enough seed at the moment for 125kg/ha or 1cwt/ac old money which sounds quite low to me.
