    Wireworms and Spring Barley

    I drilled some spring barley into half a field where the reseed failed last year at the weekend. Now digging around it’s obvious the reseed failed due to wireworm as they are present in every hole I’ve dug. With a decent seed bed and decent soil temperature will it grow away from the little...

    Success of direct drilling in long term.

    Having used a Dale drill successfully for 20 years of notillage leaving all straw chopped on the surface with a mix of autumn and spring sown cash crops . I have come to the conclusion that a notillage idealist approach is maybe not the answer and we have to be flexible to aerating the soil...

    Lets say I grow winter wheat after beans and with no N at all it could yield 1.5t acre With 160 units of N it grows 4t acre Does that mean my N costs should be attributed to the extra 2.5 ton only? Lets say each unit is £1. Does it cost me £40 t in N to get my yield extra yield or does it...

    SFI pilot

    Well I have had it with this now. Emails still aren't coming to me direct, so I am missing some fairly important ones I think. The amount of nonsensical rubbish coming out is overwhelming, there's nobody listening to us when we ask questions, utter shambles. The rewards do not add up at...

    Will Very High Input Costs, Cause A Drop In Production?

    Well the story of the dairy farmer, in the AG press the other day has for him? my view is that alot of farmers will not buy fertilizer at the currant prices and many might take the view, such as in the beef industry, just cash in the cows, why bother to make sliage, hay etc etc etc, with all...

    Ideal time for all farmers with any common sense to tell farm assurance schemes to go to hell.

    As above, we are on the brink of worldwide food shortage, if not even worse. What better time can there ever be for all farmers with any common sense to tell Red Tractor and all other farm assurance rackets to go to hell? As ever of course there will be some who won’t, and they will take the...

    Fungicide Thoughts for the season ahead

    Bare minimum N rates

    Seriously considering splitting what nitrogen we have in the shed across 2 seasons. Had planned to go with 140N/ha on both wheat and osr, dropping to 70kg N would insulate us from high N prices in 2023 but potential would drop to 6-7t/ ha I think. Averaged 8.3t in 2021 on 60:40 1st and 2nd...
