    Establishing AB15 legume mix

    I have 90 hectares of AB15 legume mix to establish immediately after harvest. I have my seed delivered and waiting in the barn. Considering the late(ish) harvest and the fact that I am following spring barley, what establishment method should I use?

    Right, we've had some rain. So who is drilling AB9 now? Is it warm enough, or should we wait another week or so?

    Sulky spreader, actuator stuck open.

    I've been busy fertilizer spreading for the last two days, putting on the final dose of nitrogen. The electric actuator on the left-hand side decided to stick open. Because we were busy, I decided to disconnect both electric actuators and tighten the aperture arms, so that the spreader reverted...

    Merlo fork-lift tines.

    Sadly, I have bent one of my fork-lift tines for my Merlo 34.7 (not badly, but it is an inch lower that the other) So, I wish to buy one Merlo tine ( or a pair if reasonably priced). I believe these are the standard Merlo tines that hook over the round bar of the carriage. Do anyone know of one...

    Massey 35 lift arms not going down

    I had a small yard job to do today. So I thought that I would get out the Massey 35 and give it a run. My initial concern was that the battery would be flat, but no, it started at the first touch of the key! But, when I reversed out to attach an implement, I found that the lift arms would not...

    Kverneland/Accord marker trouble

    Just checking over the faithful KV/Accord tine drill, which I have removed from the back of the shed. The markers lift up and down perfectly on the hydraulics, but they do not move on the bout marker on the FGS control box. I don't think it is the FGS control box, as I can move on the bout...

    Smoothing Concrete

    I have a concrete pad that has a very coarse tamped finish. I now use this area as a wash bay. The problem is, after washing down a tractor or machine, the coarse concrete finish makes it very difficult to brush up and clean the washed off soil etc. Is there a machine that I could buy/hire, that...

    Mini Digger track sprocket

    I have a mini-digger (approx 3.5T with Kubota engine) which has a worn track sprocket. The centre hub of the sprocket that is driven by a splined shaft has its splines totally worn away. The splines on the shaft itself are not too bad. The mini-digger is quite old, but is very handy to have on...

    Duet coulters, opinions please.

    I am interested to hear the views of farmers/operators of Duet coulters fitted to Horsch drills. Any experiences, good or bad? Their performance in dry or wet (last year!) soil? Initially interested in an ordinary tine drill, how does the Duet compare? Thanks in anticipation.

    Fertilizer on Peas

    I drilled some Marrowfat Peas about 3 weeks ago. Soil tests reveal that the field is short of Phosphorus. I have some spare DAP in the shed, which if applied would help rectify the low level of Phosphorus. However, will the 30kg/ha of Nitrogen that I will be applying in the DAP harm the peas...
