Hi everyone!

Every year I post few pics from the other side of the Atlantic!

To see the previous topic: https://www.redpowermagazine.com/forums/topic/115496-2018-harvest-in-france/

We started the harvest on the 4th of july. We harvested winter barley. Quality is goo to do maltery with the barley, but the yeld is just average (medium). We lost a littlebit of yeld since 3 weeks without rain and with high temperatures... But the worse will be for wheat...

"Le Tour de France" will pass in our region on monday, and for the occasion the roads edges are crushed!

If you wath the Tour de France on TV, it will pass in front of the place where I put my grains (we call it a "silo") on monday between 1h30 and 2h00 PM ? (local hour of course!)

You must be East of Paris.

 

One of my favorite places to visit.

Also have became quite fond of the country side around Sarthe,  Le-Mans.

Took a wild ride through that area a few times on a Raly Gt .

Amazing lack of traffic when you get into the rual parts of France.

Last week, a littlebit of tillage!

To prepare for the next crop: rapeseed (canola) which will be seed at the end of august!

Before tillage, we put 100L/ha of liquid nitrogen (30% of nitrogen) to help straws to degrade! But, because the liquid nitrogen is volatile (about 30% of loss in this summer conditions: very dry and hot this day ==> a lot of evaporation) we put the fertilizer and we "mix" it with the soil as soon as possible!

And as you can see on the pics, there was few guests... 6 boars...

Watching the Tour de France,  commentators are praising  tour farmers for their art ? in the fields. I just saw , one with the yellow jersey , cut out of a field of sunflower ?

Bravo

I am between Paris and Bruxelles, in the border between France and Belgium!

 

Both sides of my family came from eastern France border with Germany in the  1700s. They moved to  Ukraine then came to the USA in 1900.

Hi guys

About the Tour de France, there is a contest organized by the most important agricultural union. Every region has it own "maillot jaune" (yellow shirt) designed in fields!

Very dry wheather in my area... 5 weeks whitout rain and a week very hot at the end of june, and the next week will be hot too. We will have an heat wave... about 95°F! It will achieve the crops for the harvest!

Even if it isn't a perfect wheather, yelds are not bad! Whith perfect conditions, I think we could have broken records of yelds!

Our harvest will start in the next few days (winter wheat, spring barley and spring oat).

Waiting the harvest, we do some maintenance on the equipments! Here we clean the radiator into the roof of the 7210!

  • 3 weeks later...

Few pics of the harvest! We finished it on august 6th! Never done so early!!!

Good yelds despite a dry june and july (no rain between june 10th and august 10th). 2 heat waves and some records of temperature! The problem is mostly for corn... Even if they have a little of rain theses days, I think they will not produce a lot of grain! In  my area corn is essentially for corn sillage.

That 7210 looks pretty sharp, I like the extra lights tucked into the front grille!

A littlebit of canola (or rapeseed or OSR). About 20% less of yeld than an average year. The crop is harder to grow for few years because there is a lot of insects and Europe and France are forbidden us a lot of insecticides... The fact we have not a cold winter is not good too... insects don't died...

In some areas in France, they reduce a lot their surfaces of canola because they harvest about 1T/ha against 3 or 4T/ha a few years later...

There was a lot of dust this year when we harvested canola!
