    Is this goodbye to the hydraulic ram?

    Gene Edited crops coming to the uk

    Never mind that the technology must be years away but : The production of gene-edited crops is to be sped up to help guarantee British food supplies in the wake of the conflict in Ukraine.

    Cabless electric tractor

    It was the most beautiful evening today, and I'm just in from spraying. My evening was spent in my glass box, trundling up hill and down every 36 metres, admiring some spectacular views, at my favourite time of year. But then I thought to myself actually, this is a bit rubbish. Might as well...

    Gross Margins

    Been doing some light reading on a Saturday afternoon. Are these figures accurate? Makes grim reading. And confirms what @DrWazzock says about living off family labour and depreciation/old kit and DIY repairs. What's the consensus on GM for 21/22/23? Will rising input costs swallow up...

    Stealing food to solve the food crisis.

    On radio 4 this morning (I admit I was a bit sleepy) A government Minister said that with the food crisis, Police should not get involved if people were stealing food. I would think the exact opposite, should come down really hard on people looting veg/potatoes from fields. Equally those...

    Clarkson on the nail again?

    Liquid fertiliser and sprayer rethink

    Irrelevant of the price difference between liquid and granular I’m thinking of moving back to granular for a few reasons as well as Urea being the cheapest form of N. We are running a 6000l 32m trailed we bought cheap about 8 years ago but it’s well worn out. We’re at the stage where we need to...

    Interest rates

    If the cost of borrowing money rises, consumers and businesses have less money to spend. As demand falls economic growth slows down and in theory so should the prices of goods and services. Increasing the Bank rate is like a lever for slowing down inflation. Just copied the above, If energy and...
