    Arable offer online application

    So I've nearly completed the online Arable offer application. I've added all the land parcels, I'm confused when you choose the options for each of the Categories do you just claim for the first year for rotational items? For example, AB6 Enhanced over winter stubble, if I choose this for...

    Arable offer, do options have to be rotated or can they be in the same place for the full five years

    For the Mid Tier arable offer, I'm confused as to whether options such as AB9 can be in the same place for five years or must they be rotated? The wording says "on whole or part parcels in rotation on:" I'm confused!

    Oil in cans, barrels or bulk?

    How do you buy your engine, transmission, hyd oils etc. As per poll, in cans, barrels or bulk tanks. I used to always get barrels, but tended to end up with many barrels part empty and compromised on oil choice sometimes, so switched to cans. Need a hundred litres of SUTO, think I paid £42...

    House extension, single or two storey??

    Planning on putting an extension on the back of our two storey Victorian stone house. Its an isolated house with an almost unlimited garden size so taking up valuable garden space is not a consideration. Looking to put on about 75m2 of floor space for large kitchen diner, shower room etc. and...

    Tebuconazole on Spring Barley

    Got some cans of tebuconazole to use up, much reduced wheat area, so was thinking of using on Spring Barley. I know its good on rusts, but does it do much on Rhynco and net blotch, they are both label diseases for moderate control. At present the crop unsurprisingly is very clean with just Ctl...

    John Deere 3400X / Renault Ceres 95 Selector forks

    Our John Deere 3400X which is just a rebadged Renault Ceres 95, jumps out of high range when on the over run or when you lift off the throttle, I'm assuming its the selector fork. Does anyone have any experience with these, can it be repaired from the top of the gearbox? Or does the tractor...

    Covid19 effect on used tractor and machinery prices

    Looking at buying a secondhand 200hp tractor approx. 5 years old, what is the opinion of where tractor values are heading? With factorys all closed and closing there will presumably be less used equipment coming onto the market but I guess the export market is also dead at the moment. Buy now...

    Waste Oil disposal

    I've about 700 litres of waste oil, mixture of engine and transmission to dispose of. I want a bit of paper so a workshop heater or bonfire is not the answer! It's currently in old 205l barrels, how much is it likely to cost and when they collect will they just suck it out the barrels or take...

    House extension, single double? Builder or project manage?

    Planning a house extension approx. 90m2 it will either be two storey 45m2 a floor or single storey 90m2. Conflicting views as to if two storey is cheaper per m2 than single. Most online advice seems to say the second storey only adds 50% to the single storey cost, but having spoken to a...

    Spring barley 2020

    Is it worth growing, the sense is every man and his dog is putting loads in, but the I read online many have drilled up with WW, driving through Suffolf the other day and there's lots more WW in than around Peterborough so is it worth it? Is there any seed? How much is seed???

    JD's what does Auto Trac ready mean?

    Looking at used tractors, lots of the JD's say AutoTrac ready, what does this mean though, do they just need a screen fitting to do autosteer or just an activation code? Or does it just mean the wiring harness and steering orbital is fitted? TIA.

    Asking for a friend, for next harvest onwards, are there any farmers who offer grain storage just to the East of Cambridge. Know all about Camgrain, PX Farms, Rands etc., but he needs somewhere he can deliver with tractor and trailer and pay as you go.

    JD6155R Water pump replacement

    Water pump is leaking on my 6155R, is it as simple as it looks to replace? Do I need to drain the coolant or just top up to compensate for what is lost when changing it?
