I'm looking for the best option.
Reliable good at chopping dry Straw.

Was hoping to have invested in another 360 machine later in the year. Originally planned a decent second hand machine, but the prices from dealers at the moment seem pretty steep. In fact I see 3yr old machines with 2k hours not that much less than they cost new!
Its made me wonder if its...

The National Farmers’ Union (NFU) is urging the Prime Minister and his government to come forward with a comprehensive strategy to manage the impact of throwing open the UK market to the world’s biggest agricultural exporters and to build an export platform that...
Does anyone use one of these? I see you can get them up to 25’ thought it might be handy for steep/wet/rough bits mostly using mcpa. Just wondered if they worked well or do they not carry enough liquid for that amount of coverage?
Hi, we have a hay pasture that this year has a large amount of red sorrell or sheep sorrell as its also known in it. Is this something that will need to be sprayed before haying or is it okay for animals?
Appreciate any advice as first time we have come across it in our fields.
I'm not going to list everything so far but if I dont move some of the discussion from the pictures thread I have a feeling @Princess Pooper might personally come down to cornwall to hang draw and quarter me...
Before we get started, the only rule is there is to be no mention of the words...
In light of Asulam only being available in IBC Qty and controlled heavily, and the fact that I do not wish to eradicate everything around and entwined in the bracken that seems to like growing around our area - what options are left available to help kill it off the bracken?
Recent soil analysis is showing K levels at 0 on a lot of the cutting ground. PH around 6.0. The margins around the fields are showing good growth but can see where I’ve cut last year very clearly and the yields don’t look very promising! Is MOP the best long term option? And if so where would...
As per the title, how long do I need to wait after spraying weeds with forefront until I can top the paddock off clean? I don’t want to cut the weed off before the spray has made it to the root. Mainly thistles I’m spraying for.
As per question really. Have a few docks, thistles, buttercups (seem to be everywhere this year!) and what I think is a little bit of redshank.
What's the best clover-safe product to hit them. Ley is approx 5 weeks and not too far off being ready to graze.
I see JCB are well ahead in research and development of hydrogen engines. Surely hydrogen power must be the way forward compared to electric power for many engines
Apologies for the above if hydrogen engines have already been discussed at great length elsewhere on TFF.
I am asking as we have an informal/shortly to be made more formal with some neighbouring farmers on our land. They've promised fencing, spraying and various other bits and bobs by way of securing an agreement and having access to the land. Some of which have not appeared as I thoutght they...
I am thinking of getting 4 acres of old grass land Direct drilled with turnips after second cut silage.
Winters are wet here and land wouldn’t be the lightest but this would be one of my driest fields in winter. Never grazed a forage crop over winter here before.
I am wondering would I get...
