Are you "rain ready"?!
If we get a major rain event in the next 4 to 8 weeks will you be ready to respond?
Autumn and early winter sown, dual purpose, forage and grain crops as well as various pasture and forage planting options will be a critical resource for most farms as part of their drought recovery program!
Do you have a crop or pasture plan? There are so many aspects to a sound plan.
Some of the items that need to be considered are:
• Have you kept your no till/direct drill fallows well sprayed?
• Are surface trash levels okay to sow through?
• Have you completed preparation to those paddocks that needed farming to a suitable condition?
• What are the "triggers" (eg; rainfall amounts, subsoil moisture levels, soil temperatures, weed germination and pest issues etc) which need to be met before proceeding with various sowing events?
• Which paddocks will you sow, and how and who will sow your paddocks in a timely manner?
• Have you secured or checked on the availability of very scarce, and unfortunately expensive seed supplies?
• Do you have a budget and finances to support your programs?
There is very good old saying I often relay to producers ..."the difference between a good farmer and a poor farmer is about a week", and it's so true!
You often see the leading farmers doing their farm programs just at the right timing. Things just seem to happen. Planning and timing is everything in farming.

Please contact us if you would like our experienced agronomic advice.
Stay ready, so you don't have to get ready!
