Too dry for fert just now ?


Just been at fert in grazing land nothing on silage yet but it is dry here now with an eaterly wind coming in. Has been a good dew in the morning but with this easterly that might disappear. Carryon spreading or wait until rain In forecast I see nothing for at least a week. Straight N going on with sulphur .

Same. I wanted to do the grazing ground (1cwt/acre) last week but brother told me no - after I went at the same time last year and the way the drought went it would be totally wasted

He went on this week and has done all the silage ground (3cwt/acre).. and christ it's looking wasted right now 😢

Did all our silage ground last Sunday with straight N, rained overnight and 2 mornings of heavy dew seemed to make it disappear. Slurry on some today probably burning off in the wind and sun but it is already 22nd April and nights coming in only 8 weeks away.

Written by William Kellett from Agriland

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.
