Rolling Cereals

With the dry conditions there is a possibility my durum will be short in height and/or could end up being cut for greenfeed if the cowboys are hungry enough. There are quite a few rocks out there and I’m wondering what guys experience has been rolling emerged cereals? Mine is all emerged and most at the 1 leaf stage with the odd plant starting a second leaf. Not much weed pressure so will likely spray in-crop at 4-5 leaf and if I roll it I’d like to give it a bit of time to recover before spraying. Thoughts?

Are you concerned about the soil blowing after rolling?

Have seen on twitter guys till wheat when it’s up. We roll all our cereals right behind seeder, can be an issue of blowing on pulse stubble. Take that chance over combine eating rocks if we have to scrape the ground for any reason.

No problem rolling a cereal after it has emerged.

You just do not want to do it if it is wet as you will rip some leaves off.
If the crop was seeded zero till the roller for the most part will ride on the ridges and the crop will not even know it was rolled.

If it’s been tilled I would not unless you like to see your land blow away. The outfit beside me just rolled all there’s and it’s 2-3 inches tall

We roll everything but canola here. Have rolled lots at that stage. You are definitely good to go.

I didnít use to be a big rolling fan, one of the farmers I harvest with rolls everything and after a big snow that even flattened canola I suddenly became a huge fan!

Great for lodged crops, we have enough rocks to do a fair bit of damage. More often than not a fair bit of lodging too.

Last year we had to greenfeed about 500 ac after hailstorm. Was a huge bonus. Custom cutter wouldn't do neighbour's place across the fence that wasn't rolled.

I think if I did canola I would wait until it was up for a week or 10 days. Might experiment with that a little yet.
