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...

= unhappy farmer luckily it’s not all like it. Could use disc drill I guess probably be ok winter beans with a disc drill any advise
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...
What are peoples thoughts on this ?
Sounds like Syngenta have produced some Reglone for Ireland judging by the new PCS number for this season.
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.
I have just ventured back into MF equipment and bought a model 34 seed drill.
Some of the seed tubes are fragile, and some taped up. Please can anyone point me in the direction of where to source some new ones?

Has anyone found any good or bad points about the sky easy drill? it looks a good drill, but not much in the way of covering the seed in a wet time?
Theres just too much choice out there
Cheers in advance
Got a field that’s been grass since I was born that needs a fessed this autumn.
Over summer it was sprayed of and redstart rape drilled to give it a break. Been grazed off once and will have a few more ewe lambs run over it again as a bit of regrow that showing and with today’s rain it should...
Just out of interest really -
A recent conversation got me wondering about how much labour was involved harvest/threshing etc pre-mechanisation. I've heard a man could cut around an acre a day with a scythe, is that about right? If so this was obviously only the start - I'm guessing some of...
Has anyone any pros or cons regarding the Pottinger Terrasem? i am looking over options for a new seed drill and have narrowed it down to 3 to look at and demo,
1 - Amazone Cirrus
2 - Kuhn Aurock
3 - Pottinger Terrasem
The Aurock looks good but it is a good 25k dearer than the Cirrus and i know...
We have 2 acres of main crop Maris pipers and a few drills of pinks which we will be hoping to harvest towards the end of the month. In terms of the size and crop we are happy with where they are at now. Tops are still very green and we would like to take the tops off soon and let the skins set...
Normally try and drill first ten days of October but last two years have been caught by heavy storms just after drilling that has gone on for months, thinking of going early this time, what's are others doing ?
I’ve been a Claydon user for six years. Very pleased in general, but thinking about a system change maybe.
if you were going to be direct drilling 90% spring crops, into cover crops, what would you recommend?
Lots of flint (so minimal rubber please).
Good trash capabilities.
In these increasing regulation days of farming how are we supposed to deal with flat wheat stubble and if you want to go in to DD how do the drills cop with long flat stubble.
Are we aloud to burn small areas of flat stubble
With all this carbon talk or do we disc it to mix it up.
