    Cheap drill system for 200 acres

    Not at all; I only know because I’m after a 4m sprinter, along with the rest of the world it seems! The mind boggles with all of the spec changes through the years...

    Cheap drill system for 200 acres

    In that they have a similar strength spring, yes but the sprinter spring runs horizontally rather than vertically on the terrano. Originally it was so the 6m ones could fold up without clobbering the tank but then got standardised across the range. Much much better for stiffer ground/going deep...

    Cheap drill system for 200 acres

    Have you got your Sprinter’s and CO’s the wrong way round?! 2 little springs on the CO and early Sprinter; one big one on the later Sprinters (multigrip) with loads more downforce; plus better packer bearing setup

    I sympathise with BS a little here...we’ve had letters from both BS and the NFU saying the 2020 price will be at least as good as it is this year (and better on the 1 year) so what’s not to like? The price must have been good enough to drill beet this year and that was when osr was still a...

    That’s interesting...my supplier never mentioned we had to order by Christmas...only that he had to. I’ll quiz him tomorrow. I like Maxxpro...it will leave quite a gap...

    Also heard that maxxpro is going; distributors can order their last stocks this autumn then that’s it

    Less than 5% rust here; 1st escolta went on 1st August, second app going on this week. Escolta works a hell of a lot better as a preventative and the beet will do a lot of growing between now and November [emoji106]

    Anyone know the harvest scheme price this year? I’ve come off it but want to know what to pay...I’ve heard £82.60?

    It’s an interesting one...yes; you have to buy the chemical from Bayer but no, you can get your seed from KWS or SES. It will open up a lot of weed beety land to be able to grow beet again which is good if you’ve taken on some weed beety land (wink wink!) but I suspect it will be too costly to...

    There was quite a good graph at one of the bbro days from upl I think...I didn’t fancy being one of those people who take a photo of the presentation but in hindsight it would have been quite useful [emoji6] but in essence it showed the knock to vigour from various actives. I think I would go...

    Ye of little faith! It will no doubt be priced at the same level (or just above) 3 applications of goltix/maxxpro else no one would buy it...unless...you have weed beet. If it makes the difference between getting a crop of beet and not; that’s got to be worth a bit. So do they price it for these...

    I’ve heard.....that if one goes both will go due to their similarities. Conviso, if priced correctly, might arrive at just the right time...

    Why remove the crown tare? It’s part of the price and it’s always the same

    Looks like this gossip at least was correct.

    2019 Beet area

    Apologies; after checking it’s 40kg followed by 80kg...not the other way round as per my previous. It all comes down to the definition of ‘emergence’ and ‘full emergence’. It’s referring to the 2-leaf stage because any more than that and the fert prills get caught by the plant and scorch it. I...

    I would have to check but I’m 99% sure BBRO advice would be to just repeat RB209 guidance which certainly doesn’t say put the full 120 on by full emergence. From memory it’s 80kg by full emergence and 40kg by the 2 leaf stage (assuming your land needs the full 120). BBRO wasn’t as prominent as...

    Just what I’ve heard; you know what rumours are like though
