Well, guess what? there’s been more rain! Another 30 or so mm’s… really not sure what is going on with the season: at times it’s disheartening. But there’s always silver linings and this one is one of them!
We planted this sorghum crop about eight weeks ago and it has had the best start imaginable.
Harvest has been held up and today is a great time to make the most of the showery weather and spread some urea. That’s a fertiliser which is going to make this fodder crop grow fast and furiously.
Sorghum can be harvested as a summer crop, but as Anthony and my main interest is stock, with a little cropping on the side, we are growing it for food for the animals and sometime soon, we’ll put some stock into it.
They’ll now be able to enjoy green grass during the dry of summer.
