I have been using biology for 8 years now, carrying out my own trials to obtain the results needed to progress into the position I am in now. This is a systems approach, if you want a quick fix stick to the can, but you are only putting a band aid on to hide the real problem. Soil health being...
Hessian i get from local my supplier (Telford Farm Machinery).
I wash the microbes of the compost to put down as a slurry (through a filter), next to the seed. For compost Tea i put the compost in a tea bag and brew for 24hours
The outer fabric (tea bag ) is hessian, i intend to apply it next to the seed using a peristaltic pump fitted to my drill as a compost slurry, this will provide lots of fungal spores to hopefully repopulate the rhizosphere.
yes without it you would have problems imo, if you mounted it in the right position it may well work with gravity, but why would you want to take that risk for the sake of applying a fan. I still occasionally have problems with the fan at higher rates.
I have never fitted air bleeds as I have never had the need.
pro series boots have only impressed me so far and have made a big difference to the drill with no blockage problems, I did change the press wheels on the advice of @Simon Chiles
I can normally get beans down to 4 inches with the standard drill ?? if I choose too, row cleaners have worked well for me, if you could fit a tine, it would work, it would be interesting to see how you fit it
I am drilling burseem and white clover these days with the intention of carrying the white clover forward, in the early days I always had a yield response of 0.3-0.5t/ha when doing trials now it is standard practice for me.
its Tim Parton parker is the nick name my wife gave me, yes I have moss and as I said last night it doesn't seem to be taking any yield of the crop, but does act as a mulch, iron sulphate would soon clean it up if it was a problem, and no I am not short of Iron, it is a DD regular occurrence I...
My Lupins did really well this year averaging 3.5t/ha in the field so was really pleased, I do agree with @Simon Chiles, by growing more breaks it spreads the risk and gives more diversity biology wise, which always makes for a better wheat crop imo.
