Last years seed?

Post by JM » Sat Sep 23, 2017 9:44 am

My seed merchant has offered me some Reflection wheat, last years seed spd with Manganese dressing for £55t discount over fresh, i've never used Manganese before, would it effect germination?
Just a Pembrokeshire twat.

From my experience when I haven't used it all up one season and have gone with it twelve months later. It won't make a blind bit of difference.
Mine was Single Purpose Dressed and not Manganese.

He should still supply a germination test.

When I saw the title of this thread I thought it was about Col's bedsheets.
