This time I DD Trit straight into residue/thick volunteers. Chopped the straw.Do you DD into the residue or bale it ?
Finished cutting ours last Thursday, think it’s done about same as you 1.2t/ha, it’s been over the Weighbridge but I’ve not had chance to check the tickets yet. Looked like it was going to do a lot better but found a lot of empty heads! Not sure if the late frost combined with drought stress may have affected some of the early heads. Either way it should turn a small profit so will be staying for another year.Anyone cut their canary? Reckon I got about 1.2 t/ha versus last years 2t/ha. Getting it into into perspective its a damn sight better than It looked in May. Still a bit of profit I think
I don't think Static was commenting with regard to a 'big profit' Phil P but more lifting an eyebrow wondering if there was any profit let alone a small profit at 1.2t/ha at £380 tonne. I appreciate the variable costs are quite low for Canary Grass although I have lost track of seed price per hectare. But the fact you suggest the crop is making a profit tells us plenty about your business overhead cost structure and land occupation costs (owned/mortgage/rent) Cheers.£380/t
Find me a break crop that’s cheap and easy to grow, makes a big profit and I can follow with wheat and I’ll grow that instead
