The mixture of sunshine and rain has been bringing on a lot of crops…

- Spring Sown Westerwold Hay Mix
Spring Sown Westerwold Hay Mix: The seedlings were glad to have a drop of rain at the weekend.This mix will provide a full hay crop from a spring sowing (if making silage choose MIXQB). The Westerwold is proving a popular alternative to a spring cereal, rather than leaving fields fallow, to square up the rotation and get back to an autumn sown cereal later in the season.
- Lucerne and grass stand - will be cut for haylage or hay
A Lucerne and grass stand which will be cut for haylage or hay. Lucerne can be a very useful, low input crop for dry, naturally alkaline land. It is used for silage, hay or haylage. Keep an eye on P & K levels as these can be depleted due to multiple cuts being taken each year.
