    Spring OSR

    How do people get on growing Spring OSR? Has anyone had any recent experience with it? Following end of August combined S.Barley and felt it was too late to drill WOSR, kicking myself because as it turned out we probably would have been fine with the open Autumn we have just had.

    Pre em for expected wild oats.

    Kale and swedes

    any one planted both as a mix did it work or the kale covered the swedes over to much not planing to drill them just spun on with fert but could drill every other row if needed would just be a bit of a pain dry summers tho so swedes might not go too well could be the only factor.

    Cut or graze AB8 (Flower Rich Margins & Plots)...?

    Looking at using AB8 for some fairly big chunks of field on my next Stewardship. Do you cut or graze yours? Does anyone make hay from it? I've got cows to graze it with, so thinking that might be the easier / cheaper option but be good to have baling as a back up plan. Fairly happy that the cows...
