I find it essential on heavy clays to get the land to dry out ready...

    Claydon Drill as a Hoe

    I've seen the claydon hybrid used as a hoe in the spring... much like the system chameleon... Simply using the same machine but offset into the unseeded bands. Just wondering why or if this isn't done more? Lack of RTK uptake perhaps or is the drill too heavy to use in this way for regular...

    Glamping and flood zones

    Looking to build a glamping site (cabin) along side a river which is obviously in a flood zone. And advice for flooding and planning issues? Building a house here would obviously be impossible but i'm hoping tourism/temporary accommodation will get us past this hurdle?

    We have one array that is very high and difficult to clean, it does however stay relatively clean because of its position. Saw this advertised by BeBa energy today and thought it worth sharing as others might have the same.

    Sugar beet seed pricing

    So now that neo-nics have been banned and removed as the seed dressing the cost of the seed doesn't appear to have dropped. Given that Biscaya is ultra expensive and an extra slice into the margin on growing beet (along with a second spray of Tepeki) this adds to the pressure. Are the NFU sugar...
