would be helpful to others to add some context - variety, location and areas etc maybe ?

Cut 60ha yesterday afternoon about 7t on trailer weighers. On some better land today which is yielding more I think looking at telematics. Electrum malting.

Just about finished our bit. Good old Cassia looked a better sample than the new to me KWS Hawking . Cassia more straw, but it was so hot doing the Hawking that I think the straw was a bit brittle .moisture below 13%.

I’d guess both doing 3 ton acre. Cut back on N as both looked well and had pig muck under them and prefer standing barley , One thing I’ll say is how clean it all is. Non of it had any pre harvest roundup, and the stubbles are clean as a whistle .

👍. Only a couple of weeks ago you reckon it might be August before starting.

In July, we opened the applications window for farmers to join our Sustainable Farming Incentive pilot.

The Sustainable Farming Incentive is 1 of the 3 new environmental land management schemes. It sits alongside the future Local Nature Recovery and Landscape Recovery schemes.
