Broadcasting on rolling stops it going too deep.
harrow after ensures better seed to soil contact .

Yes luck. rain was forecast but none of the machinery bit went right for one reasion and another but any way its still got done just in time and has had the best early start.

Had 3 weeks of cold drought after sowing
Minimise Risk is the way forward by conserving moisture

We've still had feck all rain. I drilled the last of my grass seeds on Monday ready for it. I guess the seeds will still be sat there if it does ever rain..... :banghead:
It's been like that here for 3 week , when the rains came them went either side of us , until yest afternoon when there must have been a month worth in 15 min and down the drain it goes 🙄

Very impressed how this has turned out for one of my customers, field was sprayed off, rotaspiked, flat rolled before I sowed it with the Guttler Greenmaster. Half of the field was not rotaspiked as it broke with him but no difference at all to be seen. Pictures were taken today, 6 weeks post seeding

This is the equivalent in size to all 219 current National Reserves.

The aim of the projects is to deliver nature recovery at a landscape scale, helping to tackle biodiversity loss, climate change and improve public health and well-being.
