It won't alter my cropping for the coming year since the fertiliser has been purchased. However going forward there is a big question mark over second wheat here. Moving to all first wheat with OSR,beans and fallow/stewardship would improve purchased N utilisation. As others suggest milling wheat is off the menu ATM.As per title.
I am thinking of dropping winter barley and reducing wheat in favour of spring crops grown with plenty of pig muck under them .
What’s everyone’s thoughts ?
Can't see it happening here!Am I correct in thinking there are areas of the world, Aus/Canada and more so into the former Soviet countries that only bother planting wheat when the price is high? Will the high fertiliser price prevent that happening meaning the high price wave might take a year or 2 longer before it crashes
I top dressed some ww with turkey muck this year, only 1t/acre as an experiment, I will probably try it again. Digestate may be available, as an option too.We’ve often spread muck in March on bone hard ground destined for maize . Don’t think you can pin any month down as being dry or wet
Our clay is like plastic then and then like rock, never grew spring crops until we went to dd, if the autumn muck ban actually becomes a reality I will plaster it on our westerwold break and then put in oats or spring wheat rather than an autumn crop,We’ve often spread muck in March on bone hard ground destined for maize .
