    Markets have been very sensitive to new news in recent weeks, with escalations in Ukraine providing underlying support.

    USDA crop conditions – more woes for wheat?

    Yesterday, the USDA released their first crop progress report for 2022. Crop conditions failed to impress, falling below the lowest trade estimates. Just 30% of US winter wheat was rated in good-excellent condition. Last year, at the same point, 53% of the crop was good-excellent. We have to...

    Evening all I thought it may be a good idea of a dedicated legume thread for the livestock men. Clovers being the most popular inclusion in a grazing mix. Place to share ideas and info on alternative legumes used in grazing systems. Establishment methods/grazing management etc

    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...
