Only just started here. Still got another 20ha to go. We never start before mid October and have drilled WB in February. We have kind land and climate here in the middle eastern badlands, but if you can make a seedbed and are willing to gamble on the weather, crack on.

Looks a big 5 acre field to me from the picture :)

Nice dirt tho , I keep on heating about these nice drilling conditions but as usual our red marl has turned to shite
There’s a track across the top, dividing the other field, that’s the wheat drilled yesterday and this was going to be wheat as well.
We have some heavy red stuff as well but that has to go in in September or it’s hopeless!

Don't think I've quite finished drilling after all, 3 bags of 2020 wheat seed is making extremely heavy weather of coming up, busy roadside location, perfect:rolleyes:.
Do you sit looking at 50% emergence and start season on back foot, or redrill now in good conditions; only fly in ointment is the 3 litres of pre-em PDM?
And no, I didn't do germ test, never ever had problem before with one year old seed with SP dressing.

I drilled some 2020 over yeared saki on 22 sept.drilled it at 250kg ha and I’m sure every seed grew.did not germination test and was worried about vigour but it’s looked fine since drilling
