11 stone to the acre, TGW is 47 so it should be okay I think as I'm pretty sure TGW was over 50 last year.

That is the plan anyway!

I was going with propino @ 65kg/ac hopefully tomorrow

What sort of units of N are you fellas putting on ?

I was trying to put 3 bags of 10-10-20 down the spout with the seed, ended up putting about 140kg per acre so that's around 28 units of N I think.

Paustian (the 48g) went in at 73kg/acre. 2.3 bags/acre of 10.10.20 was mixed into the seed bed. No fert in the seedbed where the P is very high.

Planning to roll it today.

Great weather for the job!

Cork why do you hold back the fert where the P is high? Would you not apply some N straight anyway?

I'm not completely sold on the idea of N in the seedbed of cereals, I feel that there is plenty of time (and less chance of leeching) to put it on once the tram lines are visible. Also more accurate with tramlines. P on the other hand is different. Its vital in the early stages of growth.

The fields where I didn't apply P have very high levels and have yielded 3.8-3.9t/ac of spring barley on a couple of occasions.

The land which got it in the seedbed has high P but has P lockup due to high pH (carbonates I think).

This is the first time we have ever put fertilizer in a spring barley seedbed.

That's my reasoning, I could be wrong of course! You know me - I have loads of theories!

Finished here yesterday, 11.6 stone all propino. 20 acres to roll yet, pulled the roller with the paddles on it yesterday morn (before god woke up) put on d fert and set then, had to give d eve spraying in a panic, winter barley had rhynco and needed terpal badly. Just maize and grasseeds to go in now. Seem a few tractors working today up the midlands by the motorway, being dragged shopping to Kildare village, I'd rather be picking stones!

Why didn't you say? I could have gone to Kildare for you and you could have picked the stones here! Last and only time I was in Kildare village, I stayed in the car!

Most seed gone in at 10.5 to 11 stone for hire , we are going in at 12 stone but it's not dressed . Have half a field with certified mickle at 10.5 and taberna at 12 stone so we will see how it goes . All ground has got 3 bags 5/6/35 , but from now on the rest will be getting grain master ( can't think of n/p/k thinks it's 12/8/24 with loads of other stuff )
