Wheat Establishing Through Cover Crop

It’s great to see the wheat popping it’s head up. We’ve had everything crossed after the recent relentless wet weather. These crops were directly drilled into a multi species cover crop which was established as the rape came off. The cover crops really have been a big help for us this year, keeping the field drier and providing a cover from the endless rain. The cover crops are dying away now and letting the wheat do it’s thing. You’ll see the field being drilled in a previous post, and as you can see it was a thick and strong cover crop.
