    Rolling Winter Wheat

    With a 12m set of rolls it doesn't matter how fast you go really. Every arable farm should have a set.

    Just saw some Efco saws that look excellent value for money. Im happy to do repairs and maintenance myself as its cheap and easy to replace most parts.

    chainsaw fuel

    Mostly cross cutting firewood, occasional use, rarely have any timber more than 10-12 inches in diameter in all honesty, odd bits a bit larger but I tend not to bother with that. Parts and longevity are a major consideration as it would be used infrequently but kept in our garage so never...

    Italy's in shut down

    Of course, by all accounts it is pretty virulent and the immune system will go into overdrive to fight it. Couple that with a potential increased oxygen demand that will be hard to supply given it's effects on the respiratory system it's no surprise the skeletal muscles are the first to be used...

    Italy's in shut down

    The loss in muscle mass from lying in bed and not moving is typical of anyone with any illness. It happens to everyone.

    Rolling Winter Wheat

    You need to leave it 7 days after rolling before you go spraying it. Do not roll unless the soil underneath the surface is dry- you will see the wheel marks from the tractor all season otherwise.

    Bitcoin

    That isn't how contracts work. In a marketplace there are three kinds of people: 1. People who produce the product and need to sell it. These people want the highest possible price. 2. People who need to buy the stuff to use it to make something else/add value to it. These people want the...

    Broadway Star conundrum

    If the crop is slow/backward or sparse then consider the residual element now. If the crop is covered in and growing nice then forget residual treatment now. You can always do topik/axial later if you decide there is too much oat in it. Not so with brome unfortunately. Would put CCC with...

    TFF teaches us a lot about society.

    Well they don't put people on respirators for the lulz, I can imagine it is invasive and unpleasant, at least if you were conscious. I'd rather not chance my arm on this occasion.

    Chances you will die from corvid-19? Chances you will die if you need respiratory suppory and none is provided= ~100%. I'm not much of a gambler.

    The reality of BREXIT.

    It means you, as a UK farmer, have access to markets across the EU. It also means other farmers, across Europe, farming in other EU member states, have preferential access to the UK market. You need to decide if the top statement outweighs the one below it.

    The reality of BREXIT.

    EU gives preferential treatment to all members. Its a protection racket.
