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...

current system plough and combi drill.
wold land in North Yorkshire, light bits of fluffy chalk but also more Clay bits with flint among it. Usually in the same field. Land will go very tight if run...
This autumn and last year have well and truly shown the value of soil structure, and highlighted in particular where problems exist.
My farm is generally grade 3 heavy silty clay loam with flints, with a decent chunk at 55%- 60% forecast establishment rates, according to Soyl. It also has no...
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...
repeated use of kerb and crawler conditions the soil to break it down quicker
is this a possible reason wheat rape rotation leads to more black grass
looking in to crawler use on winter linseed and came across this
We bought a used Kuhn 20m³ twin auger feeder this week, have no prior experience!
We are very short of silage and moderately short of straw, hence the decision. Up until now we've always fed ad-lib silage at the rail, hard grub on top for the store cattle.
We run 35 Organic suckler cows...

I have about 50 acres with a good stand of Kilburn spring wheat volunteers growing. Plan was to drill with ww but that’s not going to happen now.
what’s people’s thoughts on leaving it as a crop ? Would probably graze with sheep in the spring or roll the sh!t out of it

Heavy rains that interrupted autumn drilling could also further compromise pre-emergence herbicide applications. Growers should now consider options for peri-emergence treatments to target early grass weed control. Charlotte Cunningham reports. Syngenta technical...
As title. Are they any better than an MF30 drilling onto power harrowed ploughed land after its dried off a bit?
To me the weight on the back of the tractor looks horrendous and the dainty little suffolk coulters don't look up to the job.
It looks like a steam roller closely followed by smear...
Probably should post this under the DD categories but felt it may not be viewed by non DD folk.
Been soil sampling on a couple of large direct drilled farms recently and consequently dug a lot of holes. One of the farms was about 1200 acres, been direct drilling for about 15 years. Stubbles...
Drilled some wheat and barley into lovely seed beds but dry
Would you wait now and spray after the rain say Friday or carry on if it’s only light showers ?
My gut feeling is with really dry top to get the soil damp then bang on in a couple of days
