Double shot. There’s a bit of Quintas in that field as we were running out of seed.
Just a short video on varieties for the sowing season.
Seeing myself on film...........yikes, never a good feeling
Lockdown has been kind to you
Life is good in the South of France, I never knew Caviar had so many calories. Oh well, Cest la Vie.....
Do you think csfb will become more of an issue over the next few years. There seems to be a bit of an exodus from OSR across the water. How are crops on the NE trials sites comparing to your own farm, both cereal and osr?
This is something that I’ve thinking about a lot.
The combination of our climate & lower WOSR crop frequency mustn’t suit the pest.
Traditionally, we haven’t ever had a problem with Flea Beetle in WOSR (maybe more so in SOSR), this would make me hope that we shouldn’t get the resistant one either. I only had to spray once in the last 15 years.
If we aren’t spraying the beetle, we aren’t selecting for resistant types.
The WOSR plots in Dunleer averaged 2.15tn/acre. The winter barley didn’t hit 3tn though.....
The winter wheat looks good there.
No WOSR cut here yet. Just analysing the winter barley plots here this evening. Had varieties averaging up to 5.2tn/acre......a country of extremes this year.
Few bits of rape cut locally last week, bloody things looked great but only yielding average enough
Anyone heard any prices for rape? I've been enquiring from usual few I deal with this week but no one coming back with anything.
I see it's around £360 stg green whether we get the equivalent or not.....
I heard of a price being quoted of €365 @ 9% m/c
