We still have a few varieties left for late drilling but thoughts are now towards spring sowing. There is strong demand from the North as many of their seed lots failed so if you know what your cropping plans are, don’t dilly-dally on putting your name on some. We are predicting that Propino & Planet spring barley together with Chilham spring wheat will be most popular. (Mulika has dropped off the miller’s favoured list)
Very much a year for placing the right samples in the right homes so accurate testing is vital. We offer a free grain testing service which we hope helps you with your marketing decisions.
From 1st November, all milling wheat will need a Zon certificate, as well as the Don Certificate to be accepted into UK flour mills. We are able to arrange both.
We suggest that all grain still on farm is routinely checked for infestation & hot spots. The recent wet & mild weather is an ideal bug breeding climate.
We have offers on Nitram & Spring Compounds for delivery Nov / Dec.
KaN (46% coated N) is still a very good buy & we have offers with delayed payment.
Fibrophos is all done for the autumn but again, thoughts are now in planning spring applications.
We operate the only TASCC & UFAS rigid blower lorry in Sussex so please keep us in touch with your bulk feed requirements. We offer a nutritional planning service to make best use of your feed inputs.
Bear us in mind, of course for your bagged feeds, Volac milk powders, minerals, buckets & blocks; both Crystalyx & Rumevite. Some farmers are surprised that we also supply straights & bulk molasses……it’s always worth talking to us.
We also supply a good range of sheep & lambing equipment.
Ecosyl have an early order offer for a free pair of waterproof trousers; hopefully more useful in the winter than the summer.
