    Old oilseed rape varieties

    They will be the old single low varieties that will be high uric acid. The double low varieties we grow nowadays are a lot weaker that the old ones.

    When is the time to confront the elephant in the room ?

    Are we forgetting the main reason that farmers exist ? We are producing food to feed people, and I mean actual food not food to feed a digester or even for horses etc. I'm not saying that we should be exempt from carbon emissions but going on a plane for a holiday is not a necessary thing to...

    Hybrid Winter Barley

    We have some just to try this year, looks slightly better than the bazooka that is on the headlands of the same field. Will give it a fair trial and if it's successful it may replace the hybrids, plus you can home save it.

    Radial arm drill

    Very good tools indeed. Had a beautiful one that burnt in a fire and also a lovely ironworker too all ex British coal bought cheap. Bought another drill but never used it really after buying a mag drill. Eventually it developed a problem so when scrap was high it went.
