    Why not another Krone?

    Red Tractor Fight, Campaign Resources

    Unbelievable, he's now promoting imported product over ours! I would be very happy with just the lab tests

    Red Tractor

    I think we need to see a bit of evidence of things changing, a lot of farmers wishing things would change isn't going to make it change. It's a favourite line of the NFU that change is in the pipeline, but it seems a very long pipe! I'm not knocking all the work you have put into this, just...

    Massey Quick Release Couplers

    I've put some faster FM quick release couplers on, fitted straight on after taking the leak off pipes etc off. Seem great easy to use and no leaks and breakaway safety. £55 each. Tried the QTP ones and they lasted a year but leaked.

    I thought the horsch Twinter thread was a good economical option for this.

    The Red Tractor ACCS referendum

    I spoke to a few or our representatives at the NFU before cancelling, and they claim they have had a few "victory's" in dumbing down some of the new standards for November, but the structure is wrong. We need competition in the assurance scheme. An alternative scheme that can be accepted by AIC...

    The Red Tractor ACCS referendum

    Is there any more information on this? It's what we must do, the AIC upping our standards whilst holding down the price by allowing their members to use imports is clearly wrong. The NFU are clearly not prepared to confront the issue, so I have cancelled and will contribute.

    Epso Bortop

    Told me to ignore that , it's a result of rapid growth! Soil samples show the field to be ok on potash.

    Epso Bortop

    Hopefully these are readable, tissue sample in a poor performing field showed low boron, and this was the recommendation, think it was £12 bag but not sure.

    Red Tractor - Mass Balance

    Its like state control of agriculture, but the state is the AIC and the supermarkets who run Red Tractor while the NFU agree to it all!!

    Red Tractor - Mass Balance

    Or is it the AIC wanting accurate stocktakes of how much grain is on farm? So they can keep control of the pricing??

    The Red Tractor ACCS referendum

    We need a feed mill to buy non red tractor, the big corporates are not going to change, it's not to their advantage. What about member owned mills such as mole valley farmers? Surely they would be more likely to break from AIC rules.

    Had 2 kits off them 3 years ago, good and quick, not the heaviest so check the specification.

    The Red Tractor ACCS referendum

    The chance of red tractor disappearing is the most exciting thing to happen for years!

    The Red Tractor ACCS referendum

    All we need to do is hire a boat, load it up, send it out to sea and back to port, then we can sell it to anybody at an imported standard!!

    Spring beans into Oat cover

    If I drill spring beans directly into a black oat cover will they suffer from allopathy? The Oats were put in late and are about 6" high. Will the Oat allopathy help control some weeds? They will be drilled with a Sumo DTS. Thanks

    Should the NFU hold a OMOV referendum on Red Tractor?

    Spot on, Boris can't ignore citizens because they have a vote. When the NFU has one member one vote for the leadership surely they will listen and be more responsive.
