    seed tape next year Sounds like a good idea. Barley definitely has an optimal range for
    spacing. Let us know how it goes! Could be a lot less expensive than shelling for a plate
    seeder! If it works ou...

    What a difference soil and seeding rate make.Sorry for the mixed results. I can't help seeing a

    Sad news!My field of bere was plowed under. This is the hazard of growing on a field you don't
