    Still plodding on…

    I’m sure you would, but I’d also love your soil’s ability to retain moisture in a drought and give 10 tph of wheat year in, year out!

    Back on for a bit more last week. Must say, I’m impressed with this drill.

    More Winter Wheat or Spring Barley

    I would seriously consider Spring wheat as well as/instead of Spring barley. Feed wheat price is so chunky, and you won’t be relying on premiums to keep your gross margin up, and there’s also a chance you’ll get a milling premium too, with no extra effort. Input costs are low, and with the wet...

    Just coming through nicely. Wheat straight into linseed stubble.

    Looks like I’ve got no black grass this year.

    I was out slug pelleting some wheat yesterday. It was drilled/rolled/sprayed six days ago. There was a huge flush of BG, despite a flush also before drilling which I sprayed out. Looking at the wheat, it had chitted, but was easily five days from emerging. Yeah, I did it….. I’ll let you know...

    Hope Everyone Is Ok?

    I’m also getting fed up with the cash-sapping clingers on. It seems like for every actual producer who’s doing the work, there’s five Schoffel-wearing [email protected] in their Volvo XC90’s taking a cut somewhere. I wish I farmed in my grandfather’s era. Hey @teslacoils - if you want someone to sit on...

    Wheat straight into sprayed off oat stubbles today. It’s doing a pretty impressive job.

    Well, I’m a Weaving new boy as of yesterday… 170 acres of drilling into linseed stubble later, I’m very impressed so far. Superb service from Weaving as a company, and nothing was any trouble for them. Seed placement is excellent, and the extra width/output is welcome, although I think I’ll...

    So who has started drilling ?

    Yes, lower disturbance, but also wider, for better output. I’m changing my cropping a fair bit due to becoming completely disenchanted with most of the break crop options, and I’m going to need to be drilling more area in specific windows. The Claydon is a truly excellent drill, and I’m sure...

    So who has started drilling ?

    I’m normally well on with wheat by now, but a bad year of BG last year has made me realise that it’s not sustainable to get all wheat in by the end of September long term. Seed delivery delays have helped me to avoid getting itchy feet, as has waiting for a new drill to arrive. Thankfully, I’m...

    Winter linseed drilling

    Hi It got up and away well last year, and then got hit hard by the frost and cold wind in Feb/March, when we had minus 7 for a week and some biting winds that added some serious wind chill. It recovered quite well, despite going black and blue. Then, after a very delayed Spring stem extension...

    Crazy tillering in spring wheat.

    Thanks guys. Interesting. I see a place for it in my system, and some of the new KWS varieties look quite promising

    Crazy tillering in spring wheat.

    @PMD @DanniAgro How did that spring wheat do out of interest?
  15. Flintstone

    Suggestions please

    Thanks. My only reason to consider other options is that I’d need at least a 6m drill on 215 hp to be able to get across all the Spring drilling in decent time.
