Grass samples tested this week from the MVS Monitor Farms have shown the following:

  • Hinuera Monitor Paddocks – 25,000 spores/gram
  • Matamata Monitor Paddocks – 33,000 spores/gram
  • Te Poi Monitor Paddocks – 3000 spores/gram
  • Tirau Monitor Paddocks – 46,600 spores/gram
  • Walton Monitor Paddocks – 21,600 spores/gram

Counts for this week have come up slightly for some of our monitor farms.  It would be a good idea to start checking your own paddocks and possibly considering full rates of zinc.
