I am looking for User and Service manuals and other books regarding New Holland TF78 combine.
Also I have a question with combining beans with this combine. Are there any things I need to change to harvest this crop? Like different drum sieve?
I grew a couple acres of phacelia to see if I could harvest the seed just for own cover mixes and also to look well and feed some hives. It didn't strike well and is now full of chickweed and fat hen.
Any phacelia safe herbicides out there?
We sowed 22 acres Westerwolds on 3rd April, we've never grown it before.
After the rain in May it established well.
It's almost ready for first cut, but there is a lot of redshank and knotgrass in the bottom of it and a few other weeds.
I know I should've sprayed it but it's too late now
Have transplanted out my pumpkins and watering them in today. Been harrowing weeds last few years to mixed results. I've read flexidor and kerb can be used over the top. What rates and in a mix together or just pick one? How late can you apply over the pumpkins? And are squash the same? Much...
"... the milking cows in the field next door must waddle inside each night to be squeezed dry."
So runs a sentence in an opinion piece by Alice Thomson in yesterday's Times, buried in an article that was challenging the governments agenda by prioritising bills to protect pets (The Animal...
Could be disappointing, I have one light field in with stronger land waiting for dry weather. I could have drilled a month ago but soil temperatures were very low, I'm not seeing any evidence yet that we missed a trick as nothing is showing for earlier sowings. It looks very likely that some of...
Been given a recommendation for week control in spring barley.
75g/ ha counter sx
0.3 l/ha Pixxaro
Seems a heavy dose to me.....just the usual suspects to deal with and not too big atvthr moment. Advice needed. Thanks
Up until now we have not had a problem with black grass. But one field seems to have got away on us. It’s first wheat after osr and would expect it yield about 10t/ha. There is not enough grass to effect the yield but too much to pull by hand. The area is about 12ac which would be about 4% of...
New EAMU for Basilico provides opportunity for linseed
Controlling weeds in winter and spring linseed will now be much easier with the approval of an Extension of Authorisation for Minor Use (EAMU) registration for the maize herbicide Basilico.
Manufactured by off-patent manufacturers Life...
Ahead of tonight's online bunfight, I thought I'd start a new thread for this year's beet crop.
I assume all growers have signed up for the meeting?
With the 3 year contracts ending next year, this year could be the 2nd last year of having a viable sugar industry in this country. Or maybe...
I've been having some varied discussions with some of my neighbours recently about what an expected / acceptable and realistic margin per acre is, in broad terms across the whole arable side of the farm and also per crop. As per usual, the figures vary wildy, from those who will always be...
I have a small patch of oats which due to low rate liberator have no weeds👍, except cleavers. I don’t have a starane type product but I do still have a lot of MCPA and 24d which I mix for grass fields. Would on of those or a mix kill cleavers?
The labels only talk about perennial weeds🤷♂️
Hi folks, just been granted consent to plant some spring barley on SSSI. Unfortunately they have refused consent to let me use Ally Max as a herbicide as they deem it toxic to bugs etc. They have asked me to submit application for consent for alternatives. Thought the collective brains on here...
After some serious thought I have decided I would be willing to allow 40 acres out of 180 to go to natural regeneration. Its all extremes of soil types and would buffer and straightnen the edges of watersourses very nicely leaving me with the easier working land in nice square blocks, amenable...
A few questions...
-Do people bother to clean if farm saving?
- (It absolutely didn't have pre harvest glyphosate) Would pre harvest Roundup affect germination?
- Does bean seed keep over year ok? I didn't get all the winters in and can now switch to spring cheaper.
