Welcome to Field Options
Field Options markets a comprehensive range of seeds: Grass mixtures, maize, fodder beet, wholecrop mixtures and forage crops as well as seeds for environmental schemes, green manures, game clover, lawns and sports turf. Grass mixtures are constructed on the basis of technical merit and are exclusive to Field Options.
Maize harvest is now in full swing and the weather is mainly being cooperative. Our maize trials are showing generally good consistent pollination and ripening, with Rodriguez again looking like a very strong performer with its good combination of earliness and energy yield per hectare. We have many more hectares of this in the ground this year than last year, and customer feedback has been very enouraging.
We have a full range of Silostop O2 barrier silage sheet available together with maize silage inoculants. For drier silages such as maize or wholecrop, especially those stocks that will be kept through until the following summer, this extra protection is a cost-effective measure. Please contact us for details.
There has been a surge in spring grass sales along with the good sowing and growing conditions, as farmers take opportunities to replace leys that they have not had in previous years. Bear in mind though, that clover is not frost hardy until 10 weeks. The likeley first frost varies according to geographical area and altitude, but there are few places left now where sowing clover will be a success. Consider Mustard for a late autumn grazing, or Forage Rye or Italian Ryegrass for early spring.
