    With out looking it was drilled early October on some rented land that seems well structured
    The owner normally makes haylage and wanted to give the land a break before reseeding so asked me to DD it with wheat
    It has sat wet all winter

    it'd be dead patches

    if it's been grass 10 yrs i reckon you;re lucky to get what you've got
     
  17. I don't think so. I don't think wireworm is as big a problem in no till as people fear.

    Wire worm is often worse in second year after grass I believe.

    Wet feet, slot not closed well, takeall?

    The slots were fairly well closed but have opened up to about an inch with the dry weather
    I thought it was drought stress in the crop with the slots opening up, but we have had fairly wet weather the last 10 days or so and while other crops have responded to the moisture this field has done nothing
     
  20. Sorry to go slightly off topic - is wheat following grass considered to be a high risk? I wasnt aware of this and have been using first wheats after grass as part of a rotation for many years.
