Can I get some thoughts on what to do with my wheat and remaining N? It’s barrel sown on the 1st of September. It’s had 65 kg of N so far with last dose on the 30th of March of 38kgs. I reckon it’s about growth stage 30. Nmax is 190. Was planning on putting some on next week. We are all Yara liquid. Thanks

Looks pretty fudged to me. Rain tomorrow might perk it up.

My agronomist was telling me yesterday how much better crops with liquid fert were this year.

Isn't the answer always 220 for winter feed wheat.
You could top up to 180. Surely it will rain near Aberdeen in the next month.
Would hope so but we are pretty dry. Often the rain misses this corner. It’s whether to put it all on now or half now and half in a month. It’s a long time between now and September harvest.

Without actually seeing the crop I would top up to about 150kg N and then review before flag leaf is out and then apply balance if deemed crop is worth the spend. Or at GS37 use N Tester to see? I’m sure your friendly Yara chap would like a ride out to loan you his tester

I would say at least half the balance, and do it sooner than later regardless of any chance of rain in the forecast.
The final split should be on before flag leaf emergence to minimise scorch, but you knew that already.

We put the 3rd of 4 splits (liquid) on this past week, but it hasn’t rained since the 2nd application a month ago and it was starting to look hungry. If we get next weeks forecast rain in the Borders then we are back in the game.

We’ve done 80kg N and 38kg Sulphur so far exactly 1 month ago. We’ll go again at the same rate as soon as it rains.

If that crop has gone short of N at any time it was because it couldn't pick any up as it was too dry. I don't think any amount of Nitrogen would have helped some of the crops I have seen posted on this forum. If it's not in solution it can't pick it up.
We had less than 35mm of rain in March and April combined. A lot of stuff is struggling up here and winter crops are very short.
 

Claas joins the autonomous tractor club

Written by Justin Roberts

Claas has taken a minority shareholding in the Dutch autonomous tractor startup company, AgXeed B.V.

The new company has developed a tractor designed to be autonomous from the ground up, rather than try to adapt existing machines, or create smaller robots dedicated to a limited range of tasks.

AgXeed’s pilot machine is a diesel hybrid powered unit on tracks which uses a suite of software which, the company claims, is easily scalable.

Like many small technology start-ups seeking to gain a foothold in the machinery market, the company also points to the product as being part of a larger system rather than just another way of performing standard tasks
