Project field for this season. 9 acres. 3 acres of rushes in the bottom that have been untouched for a long time. Very wet and hard to drain as sits at the water table so tends to be standing water in the winter and grazeable in the summer. As a result never been ploughed and is very mossy soil. Planning on tackling the rushes this year but after that no definite plans on what next. Maybe split the field at bottom of hill with a sort of willow silvopasture sort of thing in the wet bit .What would you do?
