There are no rules just be honest. Post to changes that you're going to make that are out of the normal to you that could potentially net you $50 of increased yield or net you $50 per acre of decreased inputs and you still get the same yield. This spring post what you would like to do this fall poster results to whether it worked or not because I think there could be actually a lot of good data coming out of this to share with each other!

lol!

I am going to see if I can get a cereal grass cutting before or after beans.  local hay markets are very high so if a guy could get a bale an acre it will be better then $50 dollars.

I havn't farmed in any sort of organized/consistent way for last 5 yrs so not sure how I would be able to compare trying to find $50.

Will be fun to watch!

Over the next coming years were going to grow more clover and improve our grass management every tonne of extra grass that we utilize per acre is worth about 70 euro so we can get about 2 tonnes extra grass we can be 140 ahead without spending any money just good management. Hopefully the legumes and strategic planning of liquid manure and increasing out pH will make us cut back on N input so big goals and alot of work ahead but very exciting times
