I have been told to have at least 2 years between Faba crops, so I plan on having 2 years of wheat then Fabas again. Fungus, ascotita and other diseases carries over on the stubble and may cause serious problems in the following crop.
We just finished harvesting ours and the header yield monitor tells us it went about 5 t/ha but the header has not been calibrated so we wont know for sure until it is sold. The crop was definitely good though and the price is even better than last year.
Cheers Goodoo, I am very worried about causing disease issues especially being wet climate....I might be better to stick to the barley Lucerne crop filling the beans and other block may be wheat after beans, depending how I go with disease.
It's mainly to help seed cost MS, anyway I may have more dirt which will solve some issues, if I can have 3 crops in rotating it saves me a packet because seeding rates are high per hectare...looking at 160 acres tomorrow lunch.
