Been thinking about putting some slurry from our dairy cows onto spring barley this year. We have an umbilical kit with 9m dribble bar but no hose humper. What growth stage would be best to apply the slurry causing little to no damage? Any help appreciated. TIA
Once the crop starts stem extension it will damage yield. Spring barley will rapidly go through growth stages once it gets wet and warm. Perfect timing would be before planting. When tillering would be the next best timing.
