Farm News

The Villager

Harvest and planting are now complete. The wet September changed to a fairly dry October and the winter crops for 2018 harvest were planted and so far are looking pretty good with even emergence and no “holes” (bare patches) evident. The seeding process varies a little between fields but usually consists of the following operations – spraying the stubble of the previous crop to kill the weeds and volunteers (the seed lost from the combine that then germinates), a cultivation to a depth of about 15 cm with 6 legs followed by 2 rows of discs and a heavy press wheel to condition the soil. This pass is fairly rain safe in that it will take about ½ inch of rain without becoming a sodden morass. ...

You will be invited to express your preference as to the most suitable site(s). This will be the last public meeting before we make our final recommendations, so we would welcome as many parishioners as possible. ...
