    What Fertilizer spreader ?

    I would avoid anything complex, or with silly small difficult to see readout if you are getting on a bit like me. The best spreader i ever had was a Bredal B2, simple,accurate,reliable = Bliss. Second best was an Amazone ZAM.

    Root crops and grass weeds

    He is breaking the normal BG establishment cycle by planting a late spring sown crop, with a vigorous smothering habit and is able to use different chemistry and mechanical weeding as well if required.

    Quad bike Sprayer

    Used logic or Enduramaxx would be my choice. Have a used Northstar here but not sure about pump condition so would let it go for £75 plus VAT etc.

    Nitrogen replacement late in the day on growing crop

    Would have thought cultivation system used would impact N release from soil. Need to stop weeds hogging up N too. i think Clover co cropping might work? One for Andy Howard maybe?

    Sprayer operator health check

    Its the long term effects you want to worry about. Most Neurological health experts believe there is a link between spraying pesticides and Parkinsons... Maybe that is the real reason why Organophosate products got banned?

    Letting OSR ripen natural

    Depends on the timing and amount really. I have memories of being half through a field with the combine when hail struck but only lost around 20% approx at the top of the swath, A standing crop would have been worse IMO.

    Letting OSR ripen natural

    I have found oil contents are normally better when crops ripen naturally.Worth something! It suits early, "low shatter" varieties and less exposed sites really, plus balls of steel!
