    Just How Much Spring Barley Can Be Cut In England?

    Are you going to try a bit later with the Avatar just to check the yield loss difference of later drilling? I think your point about the slot opening up if it dries too quickly after drilling is because it was too wet at the drilling time and carved a wet slot in the first place. I do get your...

    Triton direct seed drill

    I wouldn’t mind coming and having a look if you do get it to come and do some of yours.

    Why is this happening????

    Oh I see what you mean. I haven’t personally got any mauled in wheat as my 750 only ran for 2 days on Oct 9th and 10th. I do my own agronomy and buy the inputs myself. Mine are all sprayed but being Dd you can hardly see the tramlines now except headland ones. I was just putting forward the...

    Why is this happening????

    Because for the past 5 years Agronomists have said “if you can’t spray it, don’t drill it”

    Temik

    I used to work as a distributor agronomist in East Anglia. They used to let customers have the use of TMA 4 horstine machines if they bought the Temik. I was the trainee and used to have to go out to farms if they were having problems with them. The machines had no maintenance done on them...

    Australia trip in a month, safe,best way for spending money?

    We had a revolut card travelling around the US last year and several years ago in NZ. Not Australia I admit. It was useful having the card but yes you have been told correctly they don’t always work at fuel stations or some other outlets. We found it was the places where you swipe the magnetic...

    Canary Seed

    From my experience Premium crops use the same calculator as Triton drills and Dianne Abbot when working out their marketing figures.

    How's it gone/going?

    I’m on heavy land in mid Suffolk and am only about 40% drilled up. Have done nothing since mid October as like you the 750a has been parked up. A near neighbour of mine has a weaving GD and has got a lot more in.

    How late can you drill winter beans?

    PGRO put a flier out the other day with details of how what they’d found after 2012. Basically if you plant them Feb-April you need to use a spring seed rate. They will yield approx 10-20% less than a spring variety drilled at the same time and harvest will most likely be 7-14 days later than a...

    Triton Drill - design discussion

    Surely the whole reason it works in such awful conditions are because it hasn’t got a rear roller option. I just keep coming back to the same question that if to get it to work well you carry it with the wheels up then what damage are the tractor tyres doing that is literally just being scuffed...

    Triton direct seed drill

    I see Triton are advertising on twitter for drivers to do 24/7 shifts on two 6m drills contracting. By their own reckoning at 18kph they would do 10.8ha/hr and if I remember correctly at £150/ha contracting rate that’s £19440 in a 12hr shift. At this rate they must be paying a hell of a wage to...
