Expect mine will be ready next week so here ends the drought...
First of the locals I have seen cutting!
Have you put every bale over a weighbridge??
Because if you haven't its just a guess that you have had 2 ton acre of straw!
Very surprised to hear your oats are fit as I haven't seen any so far that are near harvest.
Ours isn’t far off, probably start on Rape Sunday.
Got a bit to do that's supposedly up to 6 days earlier than Mascani.
Started barley today. Bazooka. Bleached in colour and like pine needles. Not what I expected.
Sold plenty of straw over the years of the same size from the same baler , to know that there’s 5 to the ton.
And unlike someone, I don’t feel the need to exaggerate
4 string D1000 type? Do you usually get around 10 per acre?
Yes, of winter barley
What are oat bushel weight like?
Which winter oats would you say gives a good yield of both straw and grain and has good standing power?
Haven't started yet, but expecting 42 (lowest since 1976).
You want all three in just the one variety?
Started my light labs barley today; glacier, a real let down. Well under the expected 3 ton on this land. Very uneven seed size. Plenty of needles. Hopefully the other 2 row and 6 rows will do better on heavier land. Straw v bleached. Moisture got down to 12.5.
Finished the first field of cassia.im confident it's done 3t/a.c. and has produced ridiculous amounts of straw and for the year has produced a reasonable sample.
Late this evening we moved back into some hybrid we tried this AM and it's threshing out much better after some sun but it's not such a good sample and I don't think it's going to beat the cassia it may be equal at very best.
Our glacier looks like being the same, not sure on yield yet only half way through the first field, but guessing it's nearer 2 and a half at a guess, also struggling to stop it going over the back with it being poor grain
Yes same with losses. Seed going over not big enough to register but I guess if it’s that light I don’t want it in the sample tbh. Will be some green strips appearing if it ever rains again
Glacier poor here
Sample is awful
First winter barley in 7 years...not impressed
Experienced this last year with Belfry, albeit it in a very dry year on sandy ground. Have moved on this year.
Funky giving a decent bit of pink straw.
