45mm at our nearest enthusiast weather station near Leicester; 55mm by end of Feb in 2018, but only 323mm for the whole of last year. Two thirds of this Feb's 26mm rainfall fell on 2 days!

So I moved from west Scotland to just north of Aberdeen, we have had only a handful of properly wet days since I moved nearly a year ago. After grass burnt off last year new seed and existing grass is not germinating (except in a drain where there is some moisture). Getting very scared of another dry year
 
In old money we had 18.5" of rain in the calendar year to 31st December.
Taking the original crop year 1st April to 31st March 16.5".
Driest in 35yrs I have been here by a long way.

@Thelastshepherd If you still have no rain it is probably time think about marking hard for cull all undesirable traits and reduce stock. You have to survive a summer then a winter.

If others are overstocked then you will have either hay, silage or grazing for sale. If you are under stocked you will survive and go into spring with grazing - it may be less profitable but you will have options of what to do and great stock.

Oh! are we wet now. The ground I am on is incredibly sticky when wet, but my amount so far for the year is nothing like most of you all get, its just the type of soil, hangs on to moisture at this time of year. Managed to get 60% drilled last 2 days of October and dont think we will be back on the glue again till March.
Total rain for October was 79mm making a total for 2019 of just 373mm so far.

I recon 450mm would be perfect annual rainfall here

Project Lamport 2020

  • 152
  • 0

Project Lamport, now in its seventh year, is the UK’s leading R&D trials event. The original concept aimed to develop a cultural approach to blackgrass control, but has since evolved over the years. The site now explores improving soil health, as well as a comprehensive research project that investigates the impact of cultivations, compaction and cover crops on soil structure, organic matter and microbiology.

Expect weekly updates on Project Lamport, allowing you to participate in the entire journey rather than just the final product. These updates conclude with the official Project Lamport site demonstration and a live Q&A with our experts on the 15th of July.
