Drilling wheat 2018

Discussion in 'Direct Drilling Crops & Agronomy' started by yellow belly, Sep 15, 2018.

  1. when to start
    In 2017 finished combining on 6 October this delayed drilling so crops were later when the drought hit late spring did not help

    Not a lot of black grass due to rotation heavy land which is dry on the top but moisture 2 inches down

    No bg pressure I'd be getting going.
    When this weather breaks, it really will break.

    Depends on your drill capacity, I would not want to leave it into mid October unless BG is a real problem.Even then Spring sowing is better for control.
    I need about seven days to do our Cereals so will start beginning of October if conditions suitable.

    Finished mine yesterday. Only a year late as it was last year's seed that was not planted due to the wet. Would rather chance BG than not plant this year. Half is up.
