    Avatar discs.

    I've done 1150ha with my 3m, then put worn big disc as small disc, new big discs and bearings cost £60.65 each, so £1091.70 to redo the 3 m (18 discs), I had replaced 15 bearings in that time, but I have now got the bearings off the worn small discs to use, so they're negated to a point. My...

    Hare Coursers video - Cambridgeshire 26OCT21

    barstewards. Makes me bloody cross watching that, because that's just the same round here too. No care about anything except themselves.

    The osr volunteers were knee high at drilling time. Still can't quite believe it. Wasn't brave enough not to pellet though. Got mega populations here in every scenario. Wet summer and Romney marsh equals lots of slugs

    Tinnitus and throat problem.

    Just a slight aside. Join an organisation like benenden health care trust. It's not private medical insurance, and they don't do real major stuff. BUT they have 24 hr GP helplines, mental health too, and if the wait is too long on NHS they can step in and see you privately. And for an absolute...

    The KV screen should be ISO, so in theory it could be possible. But in practice I sincerely doubt it.

    Combining grain maize

    If anyone in the southeast is interested I am considering growing some next year. Just need to work out the logistics side. Should be about 400 tonnes if it goes ahead. Crimping not dried.

    I find the biggest issue is speed, followed by the wet soil as @tr250 says above. But blocked tubes also as the beans can jam, I always insist the seed cleaners dump the biggest beans in the waste, that helps a lot. Not sure scrapers make much difference, I find it's keeping the discs shimmed...

    Combining grain maize

    @Devon James Is that you on the farmers weekly with a strip till establishment system for maize?

    Combining grain maize

    If we could rely on a few weeks of real frost it'd be a really good crop. Cut in the frost, dry, no soil damage. Ideal.

    Combining grain maize

    The beauty of a maize header is you run on the trash.

    Combining grain maize

    His was crimped at 30 odd % moisture. Not dry.

    Combining grain maize

    Whereabouts are you. Neighbour cut his last week here in Kent. It was definitely done pretty sharp, but it is in the clamp and drilled wheat after.

    Has it started again ?

    It'll be like snot compared to untouched stubbles.

    Has it started again ?

    Have patience. It can get better just as quickly as it got worse. I'd still have a tine drill in the shed though for these wetter times if need be.

    Combining grain maize

    I am currently looking at this. there's a few doing it round here now. Some to dry, some to crimp. I like the look of it to crimp, but I'm unsure on the saleability of the crimped grain. Discuss.....

    It gets to the point you can't shim them to touch anymore. I'm currently using the worn serrated discs as the small disc. I wore it about 5mm too far to be ideal, ( had someone else drilling while I was combining) if you wanted to do this, wear the serrated ones until they're slightly larger...

    Personally, the stones blunt the discs quickly. So if there's lots of chopped straw to cut through its not so good. I just changed discs on my 3m gd, almost stone free but not quite, 1150ha.

    My advice would be get a sabretine when you sell your kit. It will allow you to drill in the wet times when the gd isn't able to. Although the gd will go in conditions that are unbelievable, the tine will produce a better stand in those conditions. Still no need for the plough here. I've still...

    Permanent clover understory

    I went to a trial this year that had a clover plot with wheat drilled into it. There were no more than 5 or 10 ears per meter. It wasn't a successful cash crop.
