    Pro Forage

    Had a flyer come through for this company. All looked a bit suspect - no names or addresses, just a list of land line numbers across the uk. What’s the story?

    Defy nozzles?

    Our defy nozzles are worn out. We have generally been using them at 100l/ha for spring herbicides. What other nozzles/water rates are people using for Broadway star etc or should we stick with what we know? Also do people agree with the Syngenta blurb that 100l/ha with Defry nozzles is...

    Anybody else suffering worse than normal this year? I am thinking the warm weather has helped the larvae. It seemed to be blowing a gale whenever we wanted to spray stubbles. We now have quite noticeable losses in Claydon drilled second wheats, where straw swaths were. I think next year it is a...

    Strip till winter barley - hybrid v conventional

    First full year with a Claydon. Growing a small area of winter barley - conventional is our preference, however, does anybody have any experience with conventional v hybrid in a wide row scenario? Would the spring vigour of the hybrid help close up the rows for weed suppression? Or will the...

    Lexion 760 drive issue

    We have a lexion 760 (the last incarnation) which intermittently keeps getting confused as to which gear it is in. The big issue being that it drops the revs to 50% each time. A warning comes up saying critical fault. We’ve fiddled with wires underneath in the gear selector etc which seems to...

    Cover crop before Spring Beans

    We have dabbled with cover crops previously, albeit on a limited basis and with no fixed conclusions. As part of our SFI scheme we are looking to put cover crops in ahead of spring beans. We are on heavy soils but they are regularly (annually) mucked and so the two main aims are to keep hold of...

    Briggs Roto Rainer

    We are looking at one of these as a solution to disposing of dirty water throughout the winter months during washdown of poultry sheds. Ideally we would want to move a 10 cube an hour but the difficulty is that we have a number of different holding tanks. Therefore we want to be able to move...

    Transferring fields between NH Intellisteer and Trimble 750

    I am moving a machine 'mid-job' from a NH 235 with integrated Intellisteer. I want to transfer the field data to another NH machine running a Trimble 750 system to retain the same swath lines. However, I am struggling to find a way of transferring the field data to a USB to upload. On the...

    New Holland Boost

    I am trio-ing with a NH t7.235 auto command. When I put the pto I am getting the full boost. I know it is not meant to kick in without a load and it doesn't on any of our others. Question is will it do any harm? Is there actually any difference between this machine and the bigger models?

    Out of interest....

    What would someone have paid for this 3 seasons ago? 200k? If so that's £250hr - we're not new combine buyers but who's buying jd with those levels of depreciation?

    25amp transmission fuse keeps blowing - the result is no drive in either direction and hydraulic lift wont work. Spools are fine. Dealer is not able to come out straight away and so any pointers would be gratefully received.

    Endurance vs C & F

    Looking at putting up a 50kw turbine. Father thinks we should go with the C & F on the grounds that he feels that it is a better design. I want to go with Endurance as I have heard that the C & F is not as reliable and if it does go wrong, is more difficult to get fixed. This is hearsay I might...
