The above pictures are of Leeds wheat sown into sprayed off grass ley
The ley way sprayed off then limed and DDed with a moores drill
Drilling date? Glyphosate date?
Got wet feet
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
This is a picture of Leeds drilled after a 3yr grass ley on our own land drilled with the same method and similar date
That's it bang plenty of N on
This is a different field just to show the difference
dd wheat after grass ?
How long was it in grass?
That could be it but it was drilled with austral plus seed dressing
It will of been in grass 10yrs plus
it'd be dead patches
if it's been grass 10 yrs i reckon you;re lucky to get what you've got
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
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.
