Irrigating Maize

This is a bit of a rare sight at Rockscape. Our maize establishment system means we do no tillage in the spring on our light land. We use cover crops and then drill straight into them with our Vaderstad Tempo. The beauty of this system is moisture retention. However, this spring has gone from very wet to very dry in just a few weeks. So for the first time in a few seasons, we’ve had to get the irrigation kit out to aid establishment in some areas of the maize.
