There was this field beside where I am living that was left ideal in grass for a number of years, not used for a thing, so I asked the owner could I take it and he said grand and I put SB in it, I didn’t want to chance a winter crop in it, so I just threw out a bag of cheap rape and ran the disc on it and it came fine. The owner said they don’t want any animals in the land and that’s fair enough, will I just role it in the frost in spring or what’s the best thing to do, it’s just rape nothing else.
Fodder rape and leafy turnip with some raddish phacelia and vetch and an odd bit of a fancy clover here and there. Glas crop so I’ll graze it lightly early December onwards. No slurry or fert, not sure where the crop managed to find it all as it looks like it got a heap of fertiliser.
