So I’ve got a little bit of time on my hands while I’m waiting for the last field of winter barley to come ready so thought I’d start a project I’ve been wanting to have a go at for a while.

Planning to put a grass ley in after wholecrop barley. Last year agronomist advised to leave barley stubble 2-3weeks to green up with weeds, then Roundup and drill grass a week later. This meant grass wasn’t sown until early Sept and never really got going last back end, so much so that we never...
we were recently invited to tender for a block of land near us, although we were unsuccessful it showed that we needed a proper tender document with a professional layout, has anyone come across anything which they have used with success?

Graminicides are OK but need something for broadleaves. Was reading in Canada they us salsa, the osr herbicide? Anyone any ideas...
Hi there currently running a 8m Vaddy and a 6m ts evo for when wet.
With constant bg pressure late drilling looks likely to only become greater and although the vaderstad is awesome and will never leave, I’m thinking an 8m tineseeder would be a good step up?
What are my options?
The kv is good...
The wet winter has really tested us this year on the heavy clay land.
We have different scenarios:
1. Ploughed nicely late summer, drilled a bit late in the autumn, November. Not terrible but a low plant population in the worst areas due to drowning. What had survived looks good but it’s too...
