Prilled Granulated Lime options

I don't know if you have OMYA products over in the UK, but we had problems with their Calciprill when using it through a drill. It becomes a powder in the hoses.

When spreading ordinary lime, has anyone had trouble with effectiveness of a following glyphosate application? If lime lockes up some of the substance..

Before any of the illustrious Spreaders of fine Lime Products start, I am not wanting to spread the stuff!! :)

I am out of anything in the shed, now and am looking at what can go down the pipe with for countering some of the acidity issues when DD seed into killed off grassy seedbeds. I have a few ac to do this Spring, and more next Autumn

What is the best priced suitable product now...? I was a little gobsmacked at the last 3-4 bags 600kg I bought from BCW, at that price, I anticipated gold dust mixed in....
Have you tried Wynnstay? Usually pretty competitive for fert & seed, whereas BCW are only near when pushed to match a competitor’s price...

They had none available when I asked last year... hence a visit from BCW!

Wynnstay have improved pricing a lot this time I have found too, maybe the big new warehouse at Astley allowing more cost effective purchases. Handy for me too, 90min round trip for a small lot of fert. incl farting around with the u/s office staff who just look at you through the window for 5 mins before asking what I want!!
 

Rejuvenating swards: Which option is best?

Maintaining grass quality during mid-season grazing is important. Farmers can maintain quality by entering ideal grazing covers of 1,300 – 1,500kg DM/ha, and grazing down to a residual of 4cm every rotation.

If you are now in a situation where cows are not cleaning out paddocks as well as they should be, leading to the development of steamy grass within the sward, here are some options.

Common options for rejuvenating swards include:

  1. Take a silage cut, probably into bales, remove the material and start again with the aftermath...
