    Blackgrass chemical attack

    I've found that if we delay drilling and then have a poorer crop we are worse off than if we drill at a time we expect to get a strong crop into the winter. Then Avadex plus a full spray stack. Anything late sown in the last 2 years has ended up with way more blackgrass. And you run the risk of...

    Best "inflation proof" farm investments?

    The governments of the world will all have massive debts now. I reckon inflation is their method to reduce their debts in real terms. So if you leave your debts unpaid, inflation will reduce them anyway. Better to have invested last year though before prices went up for everything.

    Are cracks in the soil a replacement for sub-soiling?

    I've found that subsoiling or running a tine through any hard dry clay soil just brings up breeze block sized lumps that then take a lot more diesel to break down again If the ground is cracked any time from May to August i wouldn't bother subsoiling unless it serves some other purpose like...
