  2. If that barley is anything to go by,...your harvest will be very spread out!!!!

    Looks good...

    Volume looking well, what about BG, has it flooded it out with that low seed rate.
    Have you ever tried Volume/Pearl 50:50 mix (yield and quality)? Normally sown thicker than that up here but may come back to the old daylight hour length thing.

    First year growing a hybrid Barley, have grown SY Venture for the past few years, never thought about combining different varieties. This is one of our cleaner fields but any BG that is about has very few tillers and is buried under the canopy of the Barley. Seedrate was what worked out from a 5ha pack weighing 420kg.

    You get some extra hybrid vigour effect from mixing. If it is your first time with 6 rows a tip for you if we get a damp wet harvest is that you will find it very difficult to de-awn the barley. The secret is to leave it lying overnight on the grain shed floor before moving it through driers, augers etc. The awns just fall off.
    Where it is put straight into the drier it is then virtually impossible to remove them and in the last wet year here the hl weights were disastrous.
    The Volume /Pearl mix matures at same time, keeps up hl weights and makes the seed cost cheaper. In BG situations will provide even better competition.
    Food for thought maybe. B

    Some heritage wheat flag leaf stage yet to boot. Chair for watching it grow (pigeon shooting really). IMG_20170520_090250757.jpg

    Maize into oat stubble, 19 days after drilling. Not sure how confident to feel about it but it is on some difficult land to drill, not because of soil type but because it's so bloody steep. Made the fan work hard. We shall see! Drilled with the mzuri.

    It's that time of the year when you remember why you grow winter linseed! IMG_1496589768.498367.jpg

    If we get a few storms knock it over again I'll want to forget it for good I think.

    What goes up sometimes comes down before it's time. Heritage wheat took a battering about 10% flat 50%leaning. Mind even some of the Nelson looked the worst for wear. Hoping as it's early it will put it's head up a bit. IMG_20170606_195729_1.jpg IMG_20170606_200955.jpg

    They are for harvesting dry, if we can keep them from staining we might make the snack food market.
