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...
We seem to be getting a worsening weed problem in no till winter wheat because there’s no chit pre drilling due to no soil movement so when we then drill where we slot the seed we germinate weeds, in particular ryegrass. even if we glyphosate prior to drilling although there’s hardly anything to...
I think some people are going mad. Fertilisers through the roof. Crop gross margins are falling yet I’m seeing people out with ploughs, power harrows, disc/tine combinations, presses. They are burning thousands of litres of fuel and the wearing metal cost must be terrible.
I’ve seen one local...
The bottom sieve on my old JD 1085 has never been that special and now it’s nearly worn out I was wondering if there are better aftermarket replacements.
The problem with the old sieve is that by the time you have opened it up to cope with a reasonable flow it is no longer rows of holes but just...
Anybody else finding stubbles are almost perfectly clean this year? A month after harvest almost all stubbles are almost perfectly clean.
Doubt I’ll need to be using much roundup this autumn which is one benefit given the current situation.
I’ve had an email yesterday that CF are stopping production of AN at Billingham and Ince, due to the cost of gas . It doesn’t say how long for, but it’s not good news

What are peoples thoughts on this ?

According to Life Scientific UK and Ireland country manager, Ruth Stanley, existing chemistries can still play a role in controlling herbicide-resistant weeds, provided farmers use a much more holistic approach when it comes to the management of their...
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.
Despite meticulously washing out twice after every load my sprayer lines seem to be providing a constant supply of pinky white flakes of sediment which obviously block the nozzles. I think it came from gammy trel. As I have never had this problem before in my entire career and this is the first...
Just wondering when others with experience of winter linseed think is the best time to drill?
I know some will have got theirs in already but I’m in Kent so was thinking mid-September?
@Flintstone was early last year but don’t recall seeing how it performed.
100 cows on 100 acres Cutting frequently to bales or zero grazing.
Regular reseed rotation and import quite a bit of nutrients in feed.
Not used any p or k for years just urea and sulphur for first 2/3 of the season going little and often.
Gone to all umbilical/dribble bar and just put in a...
