After a slow start, sowing completed on time

June 2016

After a mild, wet winter and a rainy spring, we finally started making chicory ridges in May. Following a dry spell at the beginning of the month, we started sowing around 10 May. The early fields were all irrigated twice to obtain a good start. In mid-May we had a nice rainstorm: 25 mm cumulative over a whole day. That was good for the ridges that had already been made. After that, sowing went well. The temperature was good. The first plants came up in 3-4 days. A single irrigation was usually enough. At the end of May the last ridges were made and on 6 June the last field was sown. The latest fields were irrigated twice regularly for a good start. Now, end of June, growth is good. Some parts of the Noordoostpolder have had a lot of rain. Fortunately it did not affect our chicory fields. In the drier areas, the first fields have been weeded.
