April 26, 2019

…many paddocks on our monitor farms have increased.  It goes to show that counts can be incredibly variable!

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

  • Hinuera Monitor Farm – 50,000 spores/gram
  • Matamata Monitor Farm – 38,300 spores/gram
  • Te Poi Monitor Farm – 30,000 spores/gram
  • Tirau Monitor Farm – 67,700 spores/gram
  • Walton Monitor Farm – 63,300 spores/gram

Remember, spore counts are still in the danger zone so don’t be complacent and make sure you know what’s happening on your farm before stopping zinc inputs.
