We showed a group of French farmers around the farm, concentrating on CTF and rotations with blackgrass management.
I popped over with cousin Michael to Sweden today to Malmo to see a Holmer sugar Beet Harvester for sale on a lovely farm. We ended up in Denmark in Copenhagen on a canal boat cruise and arrived back tonight. Three great meals in three different countries. Crops in Sweden and Denmark looked very good.
Roguing blackgrass and rye grass to keep the wheats and barley clean.
We have a team in annually to come and rogue the combinable crops and the sugar beet. It’s part of our fight against the spread of weeds. This is commonly done in seed crops but we are having it done across all the fields in the fens to prevent infestation. This is a costly job but hoping to be a long term solution.
