DEEP ROOTED NEWER FODDER BEET VARIETIES SHINE IN DRIER CONDITIONS
The hot, dry summer in 2018 suppressed yields in fodder beet crops compared with 2017, but the results of trials, carried out by Limagrain UK, showed up the variation in performance between varieties.
“We saw a reduction in...
Have a set of wafer weights that I put on the mf 5713. Iirc theres 11 × 45kg which is a pain in the back literally to do as I take them off and on as required. Is there a way of doing that as one using the front suspension raising and lowering? Near sure I've heard of it being done before.
These are my 3 tractors for 2500 acre arable and a few sheep. I love the simplicity and yet have enough tech to do everything I need.
Lowest hours 4400 highest has 6500.
but I will keep rebuilding them as nothing else really floats my boat.
Whats everybodys views on a good uncomplicated 2nd hand 150-180hp tractor? Needs to be able to pick her feet up on the roads, pull a flatlift but also be handy enough around the buildings etc . Reliable, easy to fix/maintain and drive too, no vario's need apply. What will it cost ?
I have a bit of drainage to do on the farm. Usually hire a digger and do it that way. I have been thinking about making a sub spoiler/ mole styles pipe layer. Similar to the one in the picture.
I have seen them for water pipe but not for normal 100mm land drainage pipe. I’d normal use gravel...
So we got the call we were expecting today, mill is closing tomorrow. I’d say we have 4 weeks worth if we cut it back as much as possible.
Is there a similar alternative? Not overly keen on going to sand. I also assume alternatives may not be available at this moment either.
Well we have every bit of kit imaginable in the shed...and today we decided to get the pigtail drag Harrow out of the nettles. Luckily we had some points and tines in the back of the shed
So it’s ready to go tommorrow !!!
Sumo will bring too much wet st!te up, carrier will just compact it ...
Was whiling away some lockdown time last night by leafing through some old magazines, and I came by this old issue of Power Farming. Has anyone else here ever built their own tractor? Does anyone know the farmer in the feature? I’m sure someone told me a long while ago that they knew him, and...
While out today on the A134 road in west Norfolk I followed a New Holland T7 Blue Power - presumably a T7.270 or T7.315 - and a high-sided Smyth trailer. I know there are plenty of 50k tractors around, but my car speedo was reading 43mph when I was behind it, which by my maths is 70k. Is it...

I really need a GPS for drilling with Case Magnum 7120 (M reg) pulling a 4m Great Plains direct drill. The drill is over 8m long, so not really an act of war to turn back on myself on the headland! Ideally could do with a system that could be switched to my other tractor (Case Maxxum MXM 120...
