    Grain / seed cleaning

    But I bet you’ve drilled stuff off the heap, have you seen a difference?

    Yep, I did that.

    Grain / seed cleaning

    Trouble is an old lorry based unit is exactly that and will require lots of ongoing maintenance. Something like the above would cost peanuts to run and maintain. Put it on an Ifor Williams and I’ll buy one with you.

    What sort of cleaner have you got? Farm King look popular in the US and Canada.

    Grain / seed cleaning

    Given that we are trying to use much less seed treatment I am looking at cleaning our own seed. I'm not certain that gravity separation is essential, is anyone using something similar to below?

    Straw per ton 2020

    I agree. This looks like the perfect storm. Next to no forage, dreadful cereal yields predicted, and straw is very short ( height ). Very scary times

    If it gets to £150 it won’t get much wear but it will stay on the combine! Weather at the time will dictate whether I chop or not farm more than the price.

    Straw per ton 2020

    Offered £55/t in the stack for 2020 yesterday. Put a new main chopper belt on the combine today. There’s no forage, no good crops and straw has no height. I reckon it will be £100/t by 20 th July.

    Probably right but I will try 20 ha mixed.

    Yes, I've got 10 ha in for my own multiplication, very clean with minimal fungicide. Agree spec weight looks like a potential issue. I also have Extase for multiplication, I'm wondering about mixing the two together, good disease, high yield and spec weight lifted. Can't see why it wouldn't work.

    Dutch Coulters with Fertiliser

    That’s what I’m looking for to go on a 2”. Is that a Dutch part?
