Getting ready for maize drilling 2018

Monday, April 16, 2018

Simon has written a timely note for preparing for drilling in 2018

As a result of the wet, cold and snowy conditions throughout so much of the country during February and March, establishing this year’s maize seed bed will inevitably be a challenge for many.  The good news is that if fields have been ploughed there should have been sufficient frost action to enable the generation of a seedbed without resorting to the power harrow.  The aim has to be to develop a seed bed that allows roots to get down to depth quickly, without hindrance of pans which can result, as a consequence of using power harrows in the wrong circumstances.


You will find his note in the Agronomy section of the website.
