    New Farming Investment Fund launched today

    Yeah kind of; basically the grass low disturbance subsoiler grant at the moment can go toward a grass or arable low disturbance subsoiler as long as it does the same thing as a grass one (leading disc and packer minimum 3 leg I think but please check) no dedicated arable grant.

    Bateman RB 16 prime/purge recirculation

    Think you’ve answered your own question! If you haven’t got it you’ll manage without. Just saves that initial blast before you set up with a new tank and means you can clean the lines without ‘spraying’ anything. Also easier to blast the water out in winter if no frost-free storage. I don’t...

    NH or JD combine

    I love JD tractors but couldn’t bring myself to have a jd combine for the above reason. I tried to convince myself last change but in that age range (2000-2005) the NH’s were ageing much better. We had one on hire one year after our TF78 burnt and it went very well (a 2266) but as someone else...

    Sustainable farming incentive details published today

    @Janet Hughes Defra Sorry Janet; do you mean we can do this now on the pilot agreement we’ve already signed, sealed and delivered…or we can do it from the 2022 scheme year? Also; if we can alter things for each scheme year…why are they 3 year agreements? Thanks and really appreciate your time...

    Triton direct seed drill

    I think by its very nature the Triton moves the whole soil profile just a little bit either way which is why it takes so much pulling but as per the photo it doesn’t invert it. At least it’s something different rather than a reincarnation of something else. Not many novel ideas when it comes to...

    Direct/Strip-till drilling photo gallery

    Visited the WW into bean stubble again; looking good but slugs are working one corner of one field…looks like older damage; quite surprised to see them after beans. Debating some slug pellets.

    Simba freeflow seed flow issues

    I’d have to check the book but I think wheat is number 2 or 3; beans would probably be 5 or 6.

    Challenger 765D

    Why the exhaust? When my 35 gives up the ghost it will probably be a C so interested in your comment

    Simba freeflow seed flow issues

    Is it a new to you drill or you’ve used it before? The gap from fluted roller to housing is adjustable 1-8; on 8 it will just drop straight through (?)

    Simba freeflow seed flow issues

    Those hoppers/seeding mechanisms have been fitted on a multitude of drills including the freeflow…I’d hazard a guess you have an issue. Have you taken all the end plates off and blasted all the debris out of the air box? Air flow ok?

    Challenger 765D

    Been told by a few people up to the C’s were pretty good but later ones had a habit of spitting out engines

    Horsh Sprinter ST 4

    Bargain! Try ellis machinery; they usually have a waiting list for these

    Grant eligible direct drills

    It’s a good point; not only that but one of the GAEC codes specifically says not to access ground that is unfit to travel on unless absolutely necessary (eg to harvest a crop). Is drilling an autumn crop absolutely necessary in those conditions? Just saying!
