    Due to unforeseen circumstances with the shit spreader my beet ground wont be getting dung

    How many units of p and k will a decent crop need?
    Fields are index 2 for p and k
    I'll have to get some 14/14/21 instead of muck:undecided:

    Sowed late last night with the forecast for rain. It didn’t disappoint with it raining all night. Sowed in ridges from around 1996 but gradually everyone has gone back to the flat. Ridges are great but if you have to use a thyregod for any reason all the stones will be in the drill.

    Thankfully down to around 20 acres harvesting. It’s great to be busy all winter but you’d get fed up of anything if you get enough of it

    We didn’t get ours sowed but have the two customers we sow for sowed. Have it all tilled once and stones picked. Will get back at it when it dries up. Bitterly cold out in the wind today
