    Belt and braces, 1250g/ha Pendimethalin, 120g/ha Flufenacet and 30g/ha Diflufenican = £35/ha Avadex granules = £40/ha TOTAL £75/ha Not applying the Avadex is a big saving, what do others do in blackgrass fields?

    Power Harrow Combis, Are they really any good?

    As title. Are they any better than an MF30 drilling onto power harrowed ploughed land after its dried off a bit? To me the weight on the back of the tractor looks horrendous and the dainty little suffolk coulters don't look up to the job. It looks like a steam roller closely followed by smear...

    BPS reduction = rent reduction

    Have RPA or Government announced the BPS reduction rate over the whole period 2022-2027? I’ve got the 2021 reductions. I’m really struggling with rent figures for rent review! My gut says 12% reduction per year! I think that works a £150/ac rent in 2020 to £54/ac in 2028! Too much or too little?
