The trial area was not really representative of the whole field and the rest of the farm. The farm average was over 12 b/h and a field of Sicot 754 B3F went over 15 b/h.
Water infiltration was an issue and the water had to be backed up the field at the trial site to get it to infiltrate. This was due to a steeper slope at the tail ditch end. 10 in crop irrigations were applied following being watered up after planting on the 26th September 2017 following long fallowing from Barley.
Dry conditions following picking have allowed for the majority of the farm now being ready for planting given an improvement in the water situation.
