    1 year grazing ley instead of fallow

    I have been approached by a friend asking whether I would be interested in having a 1 year grass ley in their arable rotation, instead of their current fallow year. I am interested, however 2 of the biggest costs are seed and establishment, and with them only being spread over 1 year it could...

    Allotment on my boundary with no planning.

    5 ladies own the field above me (top right in photo). They are doing a bit of rewilding, outdoor yoga, praying around trees, and the latest is a community garden to sell vegetables in town. The land was/is permenant pasture. It is now becoming covered in bodged poly tunnels, raised beds...

    Small drill hopper

    We have a CO 6 Horsch drill. I want to swap the hopper to a smaller unit as it’s only for OSR and we may also be able to mount a fert tank in that space as well. We will probably just fabricate a new tank but thought I would ask here in case some one has an old hopper that’s getting in the way...

    Spring OSR

    How do people get on growing Spring OSR? Has anyone had any recent experience with it? Following end of August combined S.Barley and felt it was too late to drill WOSR, kicking myself because as it turned out we probably would have been fine with the open Autumn we have just had. Heavyish land...

    N 1

    Kicking off today on Hybrid WB. As to profitability, recently seen lot of advisory nonsense about reduced applications due to the price of cereals having risen slower than the price of N. Here, straw yields linearly correlate with N (up to the point of lodging) so straw sales still finance N...

    Suggestions for companion / "scaffolding" crops to support combinable peas (and other pulses that show potential but go flat before harvest)?

I know this thread title has been discussed in the past but it would be really interesting to read the experiences of those of...

    There is no such thing as the wild in the UK?

    So much talk about re-wilding in the news. I've never liked the concept as its seems to be a dream in someone's head about what nature does when left to itself. But the wild - as in lets say 1,000 or 10,000 years ago, just does not exist any more in my opinion. There are 70 million people in...

    Foundations of Farming

    There have been many well contested threads debated on this forum but I discern what may be termed a 'thinning' in not only the views posted but also a 'thinning' in the threads themselves. By 'thinning' I posit that there is a weariness in the ranks of the forum members that is reflected in...

    Your perfect seeding tine for a Horsch?

    From what I can see, a lot of gents are using a 1" tine in the spring and a 5" tine in the fall for cover crops. If you had the ability to build the perfect tine, what would it look like? Would you prefer narrower than a 1" for spring seeding? Something that is interchangeable between 1" and...
