my barley was stood in a foot of water all last night, the heap is about 5ft high. Will this cause the whole lot to heat up and spoil or will the top be ok?
Thanks

I have had grain get wet, you might be surprised how much actually got wet, it won't be a foot deep of wet barley

Careful work with a teleporter, divide it out.

All top will be dry

Not sure on insurance, I'll find out tomorrow. The water has gone now. Can't really get to it with loader. 4 ton of 35% proven next to it as well:cry:

It would be considerably easier to get out the dry now than waiting until the bottom starts going of , I fumigate corn to sub the farm and have seen it a few times where it's been left , it then gets bugs and starts to mould on top and as you only have it 5 ft deep it will be drawing moisture through it slowly . As above get the top layer of dry out of there ASAP and get the wet out as it will get worse and it might not be as bad once you get into it

Yeah I think I'm just going to save what's dry and not feed the rest as the sewage from the village above will have come our way and I don't want to risk feeding and it causing problems.

Have your voice heard. Should the Horticulture levy continue?

A ‘yes’ is a vote for change and a ‘no’ could see the end of a statutory levy. I encourage you to consider the facts and to use your vote. At a time of immense change, the loss of a central organisation that invests in applied research for the benefit of all would be a considerable loss
