    What problems happen during harvesting?

    Arable is not something I'm familiar with so hoping to learn off people from here. Youtube videos make it look very seemless - combine cuts, straight into a trailer and then dumped into a grain store. But what can go wrong during harvest? What are the common difficulties you come across, other...

    The "I've not started yet" thread

    Thought I'd start one to make myself feel better. Was on grass most of last week, was telling myself that the wheat volunteers would had made the moisture in the WB too high anyway🤥. Plenty of rain over weekend and looks a showery week 🙄

    Arable farmers, is it essential that……

    When you get your Lexion out of the shed you have to state something portentous on Twitter such as: ‘Winter barley is a go’ A go? What is this mangling of the language? The correct phrase surely, is something like ‘harvest has commenced’ Alternatively: ‘The barley isn’t quite fit but we’re...

    When is the time to confront the elephant in the room ?

    Our action to negate or slow global warming is clearly not going fast enough. I don't point the finger at the UK exclusively, we are far from the worst offenders, however in general, are we doing enough ? Looking at Agriculture alone, currently social media is full of pictures of tractors...

    Lack of Small Abattoirs

    The RBST and the Sustainabile Food Trust have been banging on about this issue for a bit. But it seems both the latest food report and George Eustice are missing the point re the important role of small abattoirs to farmers who sell direct or to local butchers. The big companies don’t want the...

    RT Coping Strategies

    I have decided to delegate it to the Mrs. so that I can get on with stuff that really is urgent. It feels like weight lifted and she has time and aptitude for it. Is it getting to the point where it would be more cost effective to pay a clerk to deal with it than have to Wade through it...
