    Main dealers fitters

    When buying a new machine I put back up fitters as the most important consideration, going all the way down to directors, who I couldn't give a sh1t about, because as I have experienced, they don't give one about the customer. I am talking large companies, not your small family firm, who I...

    Pre em for expected wild oats.

    Over here in the west we've not had much call for Avadex until now as black grass is only just beginning to show, so no spreaders that I know of. Has anyone used the liquid equivalent ,Triallate , and rough cost per ha?

    Stubble Turnips/ sheep wintering

    Trouble with this is the risk to the landowner ,cost of seed, planting and some nitrogen to get them going. Not much profit at £50, then if flea beetle hits the crop and you end up with half a crop you can end up giving it away just to clear. If you want to give me £30 for stubble and you...

    I compare it with my local grain store, but that is not good enough for my farm assurance chap who wants a piece of paper.

    No till and cover crops in Scotland

    I have got a shakerator to run through before I plant wheat this Autumn. I know it is classed as a step backwards in the world of DD ,but when you are paying rent every acre has to earn.

    Spring barley poor germination,

    Could be too early, we had frosts from planting to well after emergence. Only did it because it had dried out. Since the end of frosts it has had rain every day, some is flooded out .thank God the wheat and beans look good at the moment.

    The last time i used my spreader i noticed that the slider on one side was shutting slightly, so i had to keep pushing the leaver . Not investigated yet so not sure if its the ram or my tractor spool letting oil through.

    Midlands Farmer, you are not alone. I have been DD for 6 years now, taking straw off and spreading muck on but the last two wet years over here in the west have been testing. This spring i have either had to cultivate wheel marks out , which i did not want to do, or drill deeper which sometimes...
