I've been watching my linseed yields decline over the last. 4 or 5 years.
We have a sludge producing facility just down the road and they are very keen to supply sludge on the basis of if conditions are right for spreading then they will deliver. So I've got my maize and S Barley land covered and it has me wondering about the linseed ground

Drilled Three weeks ago. came up in fantastic rows. 100% disappeared in two days. #FleaBeetle
That's not good news , drilled mine at the weekend in the hope of some rain that was due to happen on Tuesday for us,,,,,,,, it didn't.
In my experience of linseed it prefers to be drilled in the middle to end of April when there's a bit more warmth, when I have ventured out earlier in past years I ended up with flea beetle problems
