Blankney Farm Update – 30 May 2019

Crops continue to grow well but soil moisture defecits continue to increase, despite 57mm of rain this month. It has to keep raining if we’re going to expect a normal crop yield.

We are irrigating our grass to keep the drying operation going weekly – this comes from storage reservoirs which have been filled from the River Witham, in the winter months.

Second cut grass continues and first cut lucerne has now started this week.
