Surely the 3 crop rule should be dropped this year.Is there any chance of this happening
Suppose to be happening .... to be announced tomorrow I hear. Wait and see, journal Thursday should tell a lot
If it does happen there will be a serious go for barely seed
Did you ask Ella for her thoughts on the subject.....?
Yea, she's a big fan of 6 row hybrids, loves the you tube videos.....
Well that’s me fecked so.....!
According to Agriland the 3 crop rule has been scrapped for this season.
Yep the 3 crop rule is gone
I a year like this where beans and Wheat planting will be down, what happens to the excess seed sitting in farmers and merchants yards? Farmers will obviously try and return it or cancel orders but what do the seed companies do?
Count their losses. Hope in vain that it’ll carry over for use next year (very doubtful). If it eventually fails germination, it’ll be landspread. If it has no dressing then it is sold for feed. The joys.
I’m still not sure where all the extra barley seed will come from, the market looked relatively tight to begin with.
Does some of the unused seed grain not go for the manufacture of rat bait ?
Perhaps a minuscule amount, 10tn of wheat would make a LOT of bait. Most bait is imported anyway.
Twould make 10 ton of it anyway I suppose
Even if some was used for bait, the price would still mean a loss I’d say. This weather is no good for anyone.
As a matter interest, are there many growers out there that will change their cropping plans as a result of the scrapping of the 3 crop rule?? I don't know of any. Most lads up this way would have already satisfied the rule with winter crops etc and would have already decided to drop beans, spring wheat etc before today's decision was made. I'm guessing it's probably different in other areas.
Doesn't effect me eother
Nor me grass ,docks and dandelions .
That's posh .
What about rushes ? Great yielders , especially in a wet year .
It's not official yet though lads, it has has only been proposed to the Commission which still have to approve it....
Any update on 3 crop rule
Still not got the green light.
Apparently, 7 countries have applied for the derogation.
Department to announce official wording on 3 crop rule tomorrow
Sure Boortmalt said it was gone I'm told!!!
As the lads said Rambo, nothing yet announced.
Surely in farming Independent today
Agriland said its gone
There is no justification for having the three crop rule in Ireland as it does nothing for the environment and forces farmers to grow crops that there may be no market for . At this stage of the year sowing Beans or Spring wheat on some farms just to meet the three crop rule does not make sense .
