    Re: Westerwold Spring Drilling

    You might be OK but there's quite a risk of very slow germination and the plants being under siege from slugs and other pests.
    If it's a droughty soil type the risk would be more worthwhile.

    Archaeological Survey, I expect the fields are to be developed in some destructive way, and any significant historic activity will have to be (at least) recorded.

    BATA do sometimes get straight N in 500kgs (not sure why)
