    Drilling and not putting in tramlines but adding autosteer to the sprayer?

    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...

    Sediment in Sprayer Lines

    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.

    Blue light vs white light on sprayers

    I notice at night sprayers use blue lights to see the nozzles what’s the advantage of this over a normal white led ? I use a 6m air seeder for grass seed and often thought be handy to be able to see the seed coming out at night so kinda wondering if there’d be a similar advantage here ?

    Spray license

    Hello all, I'm looking at digging our old sprayer out of the shed and fixing the pump then using it for spraying off grassland and round the borders of fields with roundup. It's only a 12m sprayer so can't do the arable with it. Do I need a sprayer license for that? I was thinking I could...

    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...
