Enhanced over wintered stubble

This isthe old set aside
the worst option possible

cannot be on land that is recorded as a risk of run off or nutrient leaching so be careful where you plan to use it
they will disallow it if you get that wrong

Here a year like this one leaves the soil very sad and wet or last year or the year before
the only option is to plough in June and leave rough or plant a cover in early July

So if you rent your land and wheat is the driver other than diversified enterprises what do you do with the land in your opinion knowing that OSR is at best a bad gamble and barley doesn’t produce 9 out of 10 years a margin better than fallow? To boot the dreaded grass weeds as well?

Im all ears because although I can make good income from enterprises on the farm unfortunately I need the farm to them from and to pay the rent I need the farm to be viable. I’m sure I’ll have a good year this one but certainly didn’t last and my 5 yr average isn’t buying me a massive pension fund!

so with bps going and my machinery like everyone else’s needing to be updated to be efficient and reliable the environment is where the money is so which options would you advise myself and anyone else wanting to create stability in a very turbulent industry!

cheers

I don’t think there is much money or profit in the environmental options as I understand it.
