    Pottinger terrasem drill user opinions

    Thinking about changing drills going forwards and like the look of the pottinger. Does anyone run one and if so what do you do ahead of it in way of seedbed prep? How reliable are they and what goes wrong? Finally how many HP per metre would you recommend?

    Row Spacing in Grass

    Hello, I've also posted this in Direct drilling but thought it would be very applicable here too. I am building a new tine drill, I've got a design in mind but I'm quite undecided on what row spacing to go for. This drill will be predominantly doing grass work, with a mixture of some wholecrop...

    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.
