MAIZE DISTILLERS WET GRAINS:

Supply of wet distillers is already getting tight for this winter, we can however take prebooking’s for deliveries later in the season. Wet distillers is easy to store in or outside, high in protein, oil and relatively high in DM at 35%. Contact us for more details.

 

HOME AND DRY:

Grain harvest is well under way and with an unfortunately low grain price and little or no sign of a drop in compound feed prices many farmers are availing of treating grain direct from the combine.

Grain fill in spring barley has been very satisfactory so starch levels will be very high complemented with the 4.5% protein lift from adding 30kg of HOME & DRY.

Farmers can expect an excellent stable, high starch, increased protein Alkaline feed with a 12 month shelf life.

 

WINTER BARLEY:

Growers interested in getting wheat or barley seed dressed with REDIGO DETER should let us know ASAP.

This treatment helps control all aphid vectors of BYDV, slug grain-hollowing damage and wireworm.

Only new 2 row variety added to the provisional recommended list is INFINITY

This received 102 for yield in trials with good all-round disease resistance good bushel and straw strength

 

 SPRAYER TESTING:

The deadline for testing your sprayer is fast approaching; the failure rate so far has been low with little being needed to bring sprayers up to speed, contact us for further details and to arrange your test or ring Sean O Flynn directly on 0871272334.
