    Drilling and not putting in tramlines but adding autosteer to the sprayer?

    I know a few of you already do this, do you have much trouble with green grains come harvest? Do you use egnos or a more accurate signal? I will have an autopilot steering system which will be available off a tractor which is being sold and a new 5m drill but on 24m tramlines so rather than...

    What Will Be The Turning Point?

    I live in the affluent South East and farm in what is considered to be a very picturesque area and has a designation of an AONB. There are two River valleys that have changed very little in terms of development but agriculturally the upper parts of the valleys are dying. I went for a walk...

    First no-till drill

    Hello, I am a farmer from Latvia, we are starting to think more and more about no-till or strip-till technology. We are currently working with minimal tillage technology and are in search of a drill. We are currently looking at no-till drills, but we can't really understand what would work...

    Sustainable farming.

    What is it ? I hear the phrase a lot, from DEFRA ministers, to well meaning numpties on my village FB page who've watched 3 episodes of Countryfile...... Traditional mixed farming ? Expensive no till drills, and trampling perfectly good grass into the ground ? Organic farming ? A mix of...

    Strip Tillage and Poultry Manure

    We run a Mzuri drill and have recently built a broiler unit. We plan to utilise the muck on the arable land. My worry is spreading it pre-drilling - will we be caught out for not incorporating the muck into the soils? How do other people mange this? Is it left on top and you chance the rules...

    Kale and swedes

    any one planted both as a mix did it work or the kale covered the swedes over to much not planing to drill them just spun on with fert but could drill every other row if needed would just be a bit of a pain dry summers tho so swedes might not go too well could be the only factor.

    Traditional harvest - labour
