Well sown,half grownKeeping busy with hedges and ditches, but when I've run out of jobs and if the weather picks up next week then no doubt I'll start getting twitchy on the heavy land.
Haven't really got any blackgrass to worry about here, so disease is the reason that I like to hold off for. That said, I'd rather get wheat drilled into good soil conditions and use a T0 spray, than risk a lower GM from spring barley.
It certainly was a month ago when we were cutting the rape on these fields. At the time thought they would never dry so went in with the simba sl and pulled them up in less than ideal conditions, it was certainly worth it!I thought it was supposed to be wet in Scotland ?
OSR and wheat usually in the ground for 11 months up here sometimes longer!Most of my cereals follow maize or potatoes , so nothing to drill yet, not that I would this early . Muckspreaders coming tomorrow onto continuous wheat land . Wind and sun have dried the top again
Started sowing wheat yesterday, also finished combining yesterday.OSR and wheat usually in the ground for 11 months up here sometimes longer!
