    Perfect lines

    I would guess no since we see it in other fields too where it makes no sense to plow E/W as the lines go.

    Perfect lines

    Last plowed ’97. Dd since ’08 ’Everything’ done left to right in picture, tiles as well. We get these lines on most fields. Does not show in the crop though.

    Perfect lines

    What causes the lines in the field? Direction of travel is left to right in the picture. My guess magnetism? Lines are due E/W. Thanks

    Here I would stitch it in between the rows of rye in the spring so it can grow some ones the rye is off. I would also bale the rye.

    Permanent clover understory

    We use Herakles which is not a hybrid but I am told old ’culture’ varietys work even better scavenging for what they need. Last year we placed 60 kg of N with the drill in spring.

    Beans or grass

    I have a field with an uneven timothy stand. I drilled spring beans and let the ewes in to eat the timothy before emergence of the beans. They ate it and the beans are up. Seems like they didn’t go for the bean shoots. Now the beans are standing still due to cold weather but the grass grows...
