    Spring Barley Establishment by Vaderstad Seed Hawk

    @TWF what openers are you using on the seed hawk? I run one with Metcalfes and am looking at the difference options. I wasn’t a fan of the originals with the stainless sleeve clamping the rubber tube to the leg. I believe seed hawk now do an all steel leg and tube but have not seen it in the...

    I have a tine drill and rake after drilling in the spring. I find it helps massively in terms of preventing the slot opening. An extra pass but vital on heavier ground.

    Trailed sprayer tractor size

    Just been through this. We are flat and felt 175hp would be adequate, but went for 230hp as it would act as a back up to my ageing drilling tractor. I prefer the longer wheelbase of the larger tractor for transport.
