    So we’ve only got Defy - see attached, but having applied this in the autumn we’ve now got ryegrass come back through so we must be resistant to that as well. Tried ploughing and it doesn’t work.

    May end up with some this year, what variety stands/combines easily, etc? Imagine yield percentage is secondary to other factors perhaps, has linseed moved on any in 10yrs since I last had a fairly unsatisfying attempt at it?

    What's your preferred trace element mix?

But I still use the manganese for the barley even though I'm not sure its any measurable difference. But given...

    Horsch duet coulters

    Has anyone modified their old duet Coulter’s to be more like a bean coulter? I have a set that will never go back on the drill and am after a narrower point. I think I could cut off the wings and weld a new seed boot on and end up with a 25mm point? Any experience??

    4 tracks or 2 tracks

    If you had two tractors that weighed the same, let’s say 10 tonnes. One had 4 tracks such as Soucy tracks and one had twin tracks such as a JD RT or Challenger, which set up would sink the least on moist soil? I am specifically thinking about a drilling tractor where the draft of the drill makes...

    Direct Drilling - Clay soils

    Direct drilling on heavy clay soils is tricky. There is a lot of great advice out there, but from those on many different soil types. As direct drilling hinges on soil I thought it would be useful to have a thread based on heavy-ish clay soils alone. just to kick it of; we have a Weaving GD...
