    Combine curse continues

    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...

    Rent Review

    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...

    S Oats or S Linseed

    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...

    Class Lexion

    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

    What to do with a damp patch.

    Debating looking at a Horsch Co that's done quite a bit of work by the looks of the pictures, other than frame cracks anything else that would be costly or time absorbing to repair to look out for ?

    Grain dryers

    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. Budget isn't...

    What mix ?

    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...

    Evasive visitor

    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...

    CA without Glyphosate

    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 ?
