    Good cover crop there for the worms. Do you find that a better way than burning off in January and having a bare field when sowing?

    . The first dry day in January once it was legal the slurry tankers were in so it kinda ruled out spraying . The cover crop greened up when it got the slurry . Last year the sprayer was in first .

    I personally think its a great drill. I find crops very airy with it and less prone to mildew

    I like the way it leaves the ground especially if it is wet . I think the Valderdtad and Horsch are better drills but pack our ground too much . You could not block it Unless there was a 4X4 bale with a ring feeder around it . That drill has over 20K acres sown.

    Brought the Spring Wheat up to 110 units with Sul Can. It got 3000 gallons of Feedlot cattle slurry and had a cover crop or was strip grazed .Usually go to 120 units and bring it up near 140 later in the season.

    Would you put any value of N on the cover crop even tho it was grazed or strip grazed?

    The cover crop greened up when it got the slurry so I think it took in Nitrogen. Last year In Spring Barley I reduced the N by 10 units after 2000 gallons of slurry and there was some lodging . The rape was grazed not the cover crop.
    The Nitrogen from a cover crop would be small but the conditioning of the soil would facilitate the crop growing strongly.

    Just in case anyone growing Harenda needs some information about it.

    Lines showing in the wheat where the cattle grazed. I may venture up here and do a dig . It follows the legs of the cultivator . Maybe I should not have cultivated. The nightmare is I should have ppploughed.

    The spring wheat plots are moving away nicely.

    I gave them 1L/Ha of CCC on Saturday.

    Previous crop was WOSR.
