0 January 2022 Pitch Diaries

I would like to think that everyone has had a great Christmas and new year, and that you are now looking forward to what 2022 has to offer. Let's hope that the effects of festive gatherings do not lead to a large increase in reported Covid cases, which end up increasing hospital admissions, and we can avoid any further restrictions being brought into play again.

Those lucky enough to have had some decent time away from work over the Christmas holidays will, all being well, be rested and now refreshed at the start of a new year. Having the time to 'switch off' can be so important, to give yourself and your mind some TLC, which can help avoid burnout and that feeling of not really being on holiday at all.

The weather forecast for early January is predictably wet and cold, which carries on until midway through the month and then there is a change to more favourable drier and sunnier spells with increased temperatures. The temperatures early in the month will keep growth potential to a minimum, which will then slowly start to increase towards the end of the month as temperatures gradually get a little warmer.

At the start of a new year, attentions are typically focused on planning the year ahead. In this month's diaries we focus on how planning is key, but how there there still needs to be a degree of flexibility to make changes and adapt to weather and environmental variables throughout the year. As well as nutritional plans, disease pressure and worms.
