We are introducing cereals back into the farm rotation to try and diversify the farm output and bring some more variety back into farmed landscape.
This is our first crop. Some costello winter wheat. However with crops now only occupying 3% of farm land area in NI it seems there aren't many interested in growing combinable crops here. I can see why with wet summers, small fields and limited access to machinery. But with the climate changing, net zero obligations putting pressure on the livestock sector and availability of grains and straw under pressure I wonder whether others are thinking crops could be making a come back? What do you think?
