uhm let's see in 1 year we had a 45 bpa fieldfloated and 5 bpa, distance between fields was 12 miles maybe had something to do with it but previous crop always seems to make a difference.
ok well what we did was floated heavy harrowed it and then light harrowed it, tried running the heavy harrow tines tight so it will move some dirt to cover the seed. then light harrow to break lumps a bit.
then next day went in with liquid fert and put some sulphur.
you can put the liquid on before the seed but i'd rather have it seeded first, what i'd try is to light harrow the liquid fert in.
But before you go do this plan consider:
- $600 a tonne for 28-0-0
- $480-500 for canola seed
if it was me i'd take the crop insurance cheque this time with these input prices if you end up with crop insurance you wont have much money left after all these costs.
I know i'd said before i'd always seed the land, but that was when liquid was still at $400 a tonne
there's such thing as common sense.
other thing to consider is to wreck the land this year get a half crop off or fight mud for nothing and don't have a crop next year
