Comments Green Feed - Harvest oats as the grain head forms. Oat grain adds little kg/dm so is not needed.

Once cut let lie 2 days at least so the water content in leaf can drain out before harvesting crop.

little fungal disease attack except crown rust must check broad leaf weeds at seedling stage.

Classique/Wholecrop Barley Comments -  Although Classique has some good disease resistant it does pay to put at least one fungicide disease application at growth stage 39 for especially scald. Southland Grain & Seed along with AGPRO NZ has formulated weed control at growth stage 24 for weeds mainly effecting Southland crops at a much reduced cost. Harvesting whole crop when it is at its cheesy dosy stage allowing grain to harden so the grain comes out undigested by the cow which is a very common mistake made by farmers. CALL 0800 222 119 for more information.


Wheat Whole Crop - Although wheat has larger yield in grain wheat takes 150-170 days to mature. More care is needed to prevent fungal attack.
