    Drilling w beans with a vaderstad

    Yes they did well tbh but only 20 acres for a neighbour , but we did everything and combined . It’s just sticking the vaderstad in deep it’s well up the disc and pulls hard, stepping up to 8m this year so it may be a fair drag? In my mind a tine for beans may give a better environment for the...

    Drilling w beans with a vaderstad

    I’ve got both drills but only used vaddy before . Does the kv blow beans well enough to outside pipes? I always think it’s struggling on hill sides ? 6m evo?

    Options after roundup

    My personal position leaves me staying put and watching I think [emoji848]. All machines paid for all in very good order despite being un fashionable ploughs presses etc so it would be expensive to change . Plus I would lose several customers I do contract work for so I feel rightly or wrongly...

    Options after roundup

    I was just about to ask this but as a full cultivation leper I thought I would be cast out !! Just updating drill to another dare I say vaderstad [emoji51]. If glysophate gets banned I think we will be a similar system to now plus wide shallow weeding type machines possibly investing in gps...
