I have strong ley ground going into wheat, silage was just cut off it 3 days ago, lime landed today and I’ll get it out ASAP, I’m thinking of giving the field till the weekend just to green up and then in with round up, what do ye think or would ye just plough? Have some nightmares about when I ploughed that spring barley ground without spraying off

Spray it off. You'll thank yourself for it.

Sown 27th September, land was fallow the last 4 years at least, was supposed to be warehouses built on it for a distillery which hasn’t gone ahead yet, a run of a major cyclone and in with the plough had to plough wider than normal which left the front furrow not matching up great in places , however a run of the paddle roller and it wasn’t in bad shape to sow into with the onepass.

Cool. Beautiful looking land. Nice equipment too.
Couldn’t they find an old bad bit of land to build on instead?

Yeah pity nice big field left idle, couldn’t see the plans going ahead it’s too far west and road access wouldn’t be great if there were going to be a lot of lorries about

What’s a major cyclone like for cleaning up ground ?

It’s ok there’s probably better machines out there wouldn’t really give much of a mulching affect if you’re trying to push on like we were it did the job and made it much easier to plough

Did it get a lick of roundup? any scutch in it? Bono was to build a distillery near me in Monastrevin, I think the planning all went through but very little action on it now.

It was rounduped it possibly should have been left longer but it should still work it’s way in it got 6 days, one headland was very scutchy under a high hedge, I actually had to take off the skimmers to finish out, not sure what the delay on the distillery is there was deep test holes dug in parts of it we filled them in with the loading shovel

Just burned off that ground there, 2 litres to the acre of Gallup. Got an hour and a bit on in dry conditions but heavy rain landed now so praying it was enough to make it work. Will give it till the weekend now and then move in with plough and drill

If it went onto a dry leaf then you should be fine.

If you had sprayed it by accident with 5L/Ha then no amount of watering would save it.

It went on dry as a cork because sun was shining all morning but far to windy to spray, so when the wind died I went straight in with sprayer. It probably was 5L per hectare that it got it, I’m still in the Stone Age dealing with acres
