T-Sum 200 maps

WONDERING when you can safely get your fertiliser spreader out of the shed and encourage your grass to grow faster? Then look out for this years Kemira T-Sum 200 maps, the first of which will be appearing in next weeks issue.

Current Met Office figures suggest that T-sum 200 will be reached at the usual time in coastal and lowland regions, but a slower start in hill and upland regions means T-sum may be a little later than last year.

For producers seeking early guidance about T-sum dates, maps – which are updated daily – are available on FWi at www.fwi.co.uk under the weather section. &#42
