Anyone else disappointed with there Skyfall this year ?
First wheats struggling to do 7.5t/ha, good plant, 76 bushel weight, but really short ears.
Heard yesterday the local Hutchinson's trial site it wasn't the best either but seen no info to confirm.
So, escape from the MF and go Claas, surely can’t be a bad move. Assured by the vendor all was good and been checked over by a recognised company pre sale as he wanted it sold in full working order.
Hmm, what a mug I was, hooked header on, get to the field, switch auto contour on, header drops...
Just curious, a rent review notice served to come into force for the Oct 21 rent, what happens if no negotiations are started ?
Does that conclude that the rent is then as before for the next 3 years ?
Or can the LL serve another notice ?
Struggling to make the figures stack up on wether to have some more drainage done.
Council Farm tenant and anything done to improve the farm carries a 8% charge of capital cost into the rent.
Laat year had a 15 acre field drained at close to £14k cost so just over £1k added to the rent. That...
Between the devil and the deep, have Oats and Linseed to drill, but a field of OSR that was destined to be sprayed off has got to the stage its now worth keeping. So need to cut one of the crops areas.
As I've grown neither in the past its a coin toss unless the collective wisdom of TFF can...
Looking like I might be in the market for a combine.
Current options ( due to budget and whats available ) are 570+ or a 570C don't want to go wider than 7.5m header, ideally Vario just in case I get OSR to grow in the future.
Your thoughts please
A couple of dry days and the lakes are starting to recede. Birds are singing and thoughts are turning to spring. So what are your plans for the flooded area's ?
Leave them, plant a cover or patch in a spring crop of similar type ?
Really could do with one, but undecided on what to go for.
Have sheds, but no drying facilities, but have got a dresser to patch in.
As easy to use as possible as I'm on my own.
Crops, Wheat, Barley, Beans, OSR ( 🤞) Linseed, may head towards a few more niche crops once set up.
Spent an interesting afternoon digging holes yesterday around the farm looking at soil structure. On the whole the farm is at the OK stage to start DD properly. Just have a couple of fields that would benefit from a cover crop to break up the top 4" that were ploughed last year in a desperation...
What sort of power requirements will I need to run a 10-15 tph continuous flow grain dryer. UK Power networks in tomorrow morning to think of a number, multiply it by three then add the noughts :nailbiting:
I maybe could have handled this better, but I'm a pretty good judge of character generally and this one I reacted to very quickly.
Chap turned up in the yard, ( we're 1/2 a mile off the main road and its a dead end once here ) nice shiny black newish car, well dressed, asking to speak to a...
First year of DD and looking at spending ( for me ) a considerable amount of £ on a drill, but as I'm a novice at it, I'm reliant on Glysophate for pre drilling cleanup due to bad BG infestation.
If it goes in 2 years what are the plans to replace or get round the issue ?
