Hairy Paddock

20130618 010Ten days after we rolled the seed in, the oats have sprouted.  There was a little bit of green on the paddock yesterday, but it shot up about 2 inches overnight!  So now we wait.  If everything goes in our favour, we won’t touch the paddock for 4 months.  We have used a controlled release mineral fertiliser and hopefully we won’t get a second germination of the capeweed and onion weed.  If we do, we will have to go back in for some  chemical warfare with chlorosulfuron again.
