That's not what you told me😂😂😂😉😉
I put some in last week they well up and growing ,depends on the year but if it's stays mild they will grow through until February , Rape never does much here , we quite high up here
If you drive 5 miles down the road they are 2 weeks ahead if us in the spring
Devon and South East will be a fair bit ahead of farms up North

I can't see where he will get certified seed from at this late date, re-cleaned maybe but then that's a whole new ball game on top of late sowing.

In July, we opened the applications window for farmers to join our Sustainable Farming Incentive pilot.

The Sustainable Farming Incentive is 1 of the 3 new environmental land management schemes. It sits alongside the future Local Nature Recovery and Landscape Recovery schemes.

Through the Sustainable Farming Incentive, farmers will be paid for environmentally sustainable actions – ones that are simple to do and do not require previous agri-environment scheme experience.

We are piloting the scheme to...
