Got 2t of Tundra and a field I never managed to get drilled in the Autumn, just about dry enough to get the drill out, is it too late? Guess up the seedrate and bang them in? Know of some locally planted two weeks ago on drier ground. Thoughts??
 
In 2013 15 April drilled spring beans did 4 to 5 tonne per ha
in 2012 15 March beans did 1 tonne per ha
last year my last planted April beans were the best less desease

if condition are good to excelant then plant if not wait till is is dryer and warmer

You want to be at 40-50 plants/m2 so I'd be planting around 60 seeds/m2. Way more than drilling in the autumn. I doubt that harvesting will be any later than a spring variety sown at the same time.

A man has pleaded guilty at Newtownards Magistrates’ Court to waste offences relating to a bonfire next to the electrical sub-station on the Circular Road in Newtownards, Co. Down.

Gareth Gill (51) of Abbot’s Walk, Newtownards pleaded guilty to two charges under the Waste and Contaminated Land (Northern Ireland) Order 1997, for which he was fined £150 each and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy

On June 25, 2018, PSNI officers went to Gill’s yard, where they found a large amount of waste consisting of scrap wood, pallets, carpet and underlay.

Discussion with Northern Ireland Environment Agency (NIEA) officers confirmed the site...
