Poll - Should the spreading deadlines be extended?

Do you think there should be a one-month extension given to slurry and fertiliser spreading deadlines? Is one month enough? Take our poll below and have your say!

During the week the FCI (The Association of Farm & Forestry Contractors in Ireland) have requested an extension to slurry and fertiliser spreading deadlines for this Autumn. The group have called for a one-month extension to be granted to allow for the spreading of slurry beyond the October 15th deadline and fertiliser beyond the September 15th deadline.

They made the calls in light of the recent drought conditions, which affected silage yields dramatically thus far. They say this will provide ample opportunity to contractors to complete their land-spreading activities, weather and ground conditions permitting, after their recent struggles to get anything spread.

But what do you think? Should an extension be granted? Is one month enough? Take our poll below and have your say on the matter!
